    In the Old Faithful area, Grotto Geyser's fantastic bulbous shape is believed to be a result of geyserite covering the trunks of trees that had once grew there.

    West Thumb Geyser Basin

    The West Thumb Geyser Basin is interesting indeed, although not as large or active as the Old Faithful area. Still, the beutiful lake in the background makes it a must stop.

    Sunset at West Thumb

    West Thumb is so called because the inlet resembles a thumb of the greater Yellowstone Lake. Many mudpots and fumaroles are found here, accompanied by the pungent sulfurous odor.

    This view is from the front of Old Faithful Inn early in the morning. In the distance the steam raises from several geisers and fumeroles.
