Beautiful pic's! Where was your vantage point for that great shot of Grand Prismatic Spring??


Just before you get to the Geyser basin on the left as you are driving north you will find a parking lot...I think for the trail to Fairy Falls.

Park there and take a wide trail toward Grand Prismatic Spring...on the back side. When you are perpendicular to the spring take an "unoffical" trail up to the top of a bluff that overlooks the spring. Total hike is about 3/4 of a mile.

Anything I should look out for, or must see. If you're not a member of RV Pic Link, I would join and post your photos...


I'm sure you know this but Yellowstone/Grand Teton area is a must visit. If you are into western or horses...Cody is a must visit also.

Beartooth Scenic Highway from Red Lodge Montana to the North East Entrance of Yellowstone is one of the most beautiful drives in North America. I particularly like Mid June through early July as there is plenty of snow that is pretty to see but you dont have to drive through it. The pass tops out at nearly 11,000ft.

Great trip and pictures..I did same in 07 and have great memories. Some how I added an additional 3500 miles but that is because after I went to yellowstone I had to take daughter to Salt Lake and then picked up wife and went back to Yellowstone and Cody then on way to Grand Caynon sidetracked to Arches, Canyon Lands, Cedar Breaks, Zion, and Brice Canyon.

This is a trip of the West everyone should make at least once.

Lucky guy to make a great family trip

I'm glad you enjoyed your trip outwest- I'm not sure if you intended to capture the rifle in the back window OR the bumper sticker that Reads- "Wolves government sponsored terriorist" what ever the intention- both the rifle or the sticker- are symbolic of the real west.

Mike, thanx for sharing...looks like a great road trip.

We are planning similar for next year, but I have to ask; isn't that a LOT for 2 weeks?!

You were doing 400-500 mi/day?
Am I missing something?

I am thinking 3 weeks, and wish I had more time than that...

Please provide some more deets on your trip...inquiring minds want to know!

Tx, Bill
