Yellowstone will be closing down most of their roads in a couple of weeks, so here at the end of the season, it's a much more quiet park than it was even a few weeks ago. The weather was cool but not bad. Friday there was a period of snow and light rain, but it cleared off and gave us a beautiful showing for an Old Faithful blast.
Saturday was a bit nicer, which afforded great views of West Thumb, the Upper and Lower Yellowstone Falls, Grand Prismatic Spring and lots of countryside between. I'll say that the hike back up from the Lower Yellowstone Falls was a real workout -- my goal was to do it all in one go, which I did, but it was a sweat-raising experience. A 300+ foot waterfall with that much water was definitely worth it.
