To Old Faithful Lodge
On the way to Old Faithful Lodge, we crossed the Continental Divide -- 8391 feet above sea level! We also visited West Thumb and Grant Village. While having a great lunch in the Lodge dinning room, we learned that this impressive structure was built in 1903.
We also strolled through the geyser basin to see many hot springs, fountains, and watched Old Faithful geyser blow as well. We also got to see the occasional eruption of the Bee Hive geyser.
There is a great blacktop and wood ramp walkway around this area. We had lunch at the Old Faithful Lodge which was very nice and drove back to Fishing Bridge in time for the guys to fish.
