Idaho Falls, ID (Trip to Yellowstone - Day 07)

On day 07, we drove from Bigsky, MT to Salt lake city, UT. So we crossed Idaho state and visited Idaho falls.

The waterfall is man made one and was not that interesting to see. However it added beauty to the city center.

Mud Volcano - Yellowstone National Park, WY

The Mud volcano is a wonderful thing to see.

It is like a mud spring with boiling swirling mud.

We wish we had more time to spend in Yellowstone but it was getting dark and we had to turn back to the cabin.

Hayden Valley - Yellowstone National Park, WY

We drove through Hayden valley when we come back from canyon village. People were watching with big telescopes but we didn't stop and spend much time there.

We saw few deer drinking water from the river. The Yellowstone river is flowing through the valley and that was a really beautiful scenery.

Then we stopped on the shore of Yellowstone lake near the natural bridge.

We stopped at Dragon's mouth and mud volcano too.

Canyon Village - Yellowstone National Park, WY

Our intention was to visit Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. The drive from Mammoth springs to canyon village was splendid. That's when we saw a black bear too.

We visited Lower falls in the canyon. There was a short hike to the lookout point. 

Due to the time limitation, we had to skip upper falls and artist point. Then we turned back to drive through Hayden Valley.

Mammoth Hot Springs - Yellowstone National Park, WY

Our next stop was Mammoth hot springs terrace. It was a bit long hike and the atmosphere was full of sulfur smell.

It is actually a natural wonder.

It is a large area and we couldn't cover the full trail. It was around 2 pm and we were really hungry. Then we turned back and had lunch from the hotel near by.

Then we headed to the canyon village.

Gibbons Falls - Yellowstone National Park, WY

On the second day, we entered from West entrance and took left from Madison junction. On the way to Norris junction, we got down at Gibbons falls.

The fall was beautiful. We didn't spend much time there though. We tried to cover the park as much as possible on that day.

We left Gibbon's fall and stopped at Mammoth Hot Springs.
