We arrived at the Park on Saturday September 15, 2015 it was raining and cold. After checking into the Hotel, we decided to take a walk around town, and checked out some of the restaurants. The next day we got up to explore the park it was raining but we did not let that deter us from going in and having a good time. We saw some of the Wild life, lots of Bison, Mule Deer and Pronghorn. In the water streams, we would see groups of Otters swimming together. When we entered the park, we headed south towards Old Faithful stopping on the way to see, The Great Fountain Geyser, Grand Prismatic Spring, Black Sand Basin and then Old Faithful. We also did some of the off shoots to see the waterfalls and gorges these were a little scary being only one care width and one-way only.

Next day we entered the park and headed north towards Mammoth Hot Springs. When we reached the Norris Geyser Basin, we decided to change our direction and head towards Canyon Village and then to Tower-Roosevelt. We would then go on to Mammoth Hot Springs. We passed Canyon Village and as we made our way towards Tower-Roosevelt at about an elevation of 9000 ft., it started to snow and heavily. We then made the decision to go back to Norris Geyser Basin and head to Mammoth Hot Springs.
On our way towards leaving the park, we stopped at the Albright Visitor Center. As we were going to our car, we stopped and looked across the street at the park headquarters to see a number of Mule Deer just lying around and enjoying the human crowed who were taking pictures of them.
Leaving the park we went thru the town of Gardiner
The wild west!
