Geyser girls!

Today we went to look at Geysers on the West side of Yellowstone.  We went to look at Old Faithful again and did a very long walk around all the other Geysers around there.  I saw lots of different poo so I took pictures of lots of it so I could check what animal did it.  You aren’t allowed to go off the paths in case the ground is on fire but some animals had and we saw their tracks on the ground.  The Geysers were lots of different colours like a rainbow.  We went to look at a waterfall and we all had a picture.  I don’t want to write any more tonight because I’m very tired.

Oh and I took a picture of a Bison and it stated to do a poo so I checked the camera and I took a picture of it.

Each night we upload the pictures from Martha’s camera and there are lots of funny videos she has taken of herself whilst sitting in the back of the car.  Unfortunately at the moment our wifi signal isn’t strong enough to upload video but we hope to add some later on in the trip.

Dinosaur Grrrr!

Today we went to the Museum of the Rockies. It was brilliant because we got to look at dinosaurs and crocodiles. There was a crocodile part with real crocodiles, an olden days part, a dinosaurs part and a geology part. I went in the gift shop and bought some pretty rocks, one was a crystal, one a peacock stone and one a geode. Eliza bought some dinosaur shaped rocks. We went into the planetarium to watch a programme about space and time and gravity. My favourite part of the museum was when I got my rocks.

After that we went to a cool cafe that had a bison head on the wall. I had soup and some homemade bread and I got a cake to take with me.

We drove back to West Yellowstone and we are staying in a new wooden cabin. It has a toilet and shower, not like the other one. We have sent Daddy out for Cheesy Pizza and we are playing outside.

On our way here we stopped because Daddy thought he saw a bear but it was just a monument. We also stopped to see people white water rafting on the rapids. I really want to have a go but Mummy and Daddy said we’ll have to see as the rivers are really high with all the snow melting and going into them. They said I might have to go on a gentle river but I told them I would be fine on the river we saw the grown ups on.

West Yellowstone is at about 2000m above sea level and almost exactly halfway between the equator and the North Pole. The coldest it’s ever been here is -54 degrees Celsius.
