For the last couple of days I've been 'hanging out' ,as they say here, around the Upper Geyser Basin in Yellowstone with my miniature ski instructor and newly appointed Junior Ranger, whilst Mr Lovelygrey goes further afield and is allowed to fall over in privacy in a brave attempt to improve his cross country technique. For a reasonable donation of 50c I purchased a map of the geyser basin at the Old Faithful Information Centre. Here's Louis planning our route whilst waiting for the granddaddy of geysers to force many thousands of bath tub loads of water into the air!
Sadly we're heading out of the park today, leaving our friends John and Julie, the bison and other beasties. Our child starved son will be sharing a room with someone of his own age for our final night. Fingers crossed that he'll get some shut eye before our flight home and not end up Sleepless in Seattle!
