Now do you understand why I have no idea what month or season it is?
It has snowed all day off and on.
As my wonderful Montana dentist said, "There are three seasons here...winter, construction and company. Usually the construction and company come at the same time."
I decided to drive to the West Thumb Geyser Basin which is about a half an hour south of here.
I thought the snow looked interesting against some trees that were burned in a fire last year.
Don't worry, there are plenty more trees in the Park....gazillions of trees if you must know.
It's a short hike around the board walk, but a lot is going on.
That's a big lake, right?
Right now, it is still frozen. So am I, for that matter.
Ice, snow, fire, water. What more could you ask for?
Follow me down this boardwalk to see the strange and lovely sights.
They seemed harmless, but I think everything around here could kick you to death if it wanted.
The boardwalk goes right along the lake.
Those three tourists slipped on the ice and were swept away, so the next photo is awesome and will win me some prizes.
You know I'm kidding, right? And I wonder why no one wants to hang with me.
There are geysers right out in the lake.
Trust me, they are everywhere.
I'm surprised that there isn't one right outside my bedroom window.
May be one tomorrow. Nothing surprises me here.
There was ice hanging from my nose too, but you aren't getting a picture of that.
It was starting to snow again.
Have I mentioned that the geysers smell like rotten eggs?
It's the sulfur making that odor, and I will always think of Yellowstone when I have deviled eggs in the refrigerator.
This bus was in the parking lot when I left.
There was no one in it.
I didn't see any hippies on the boardwalk.
You can make up your own story about this if you like.
So that's the end of the adventures for today. I have walked a couple of miles around the Old Faithful Geyser Basin, had dinner, done my laundry and it's only 6:30.
Someone has to get me out of here. I'm not shaving, my skin is getting scaly, I spend a lot of time alone having dangerous thoughts, I'm starting to talk to the German guy who has finger puppets (I will get a picture of him before I leave) and the employee dining room is starting to serve chicken
I still have some movies to watch, but when they're gone, I don't know what will happen. Hubby is coming to get me toward the end of June. The pictures will continue. Until tomorrow.
