Wild Yellowstone – Day 4 (Jackson Hole to West Yellowstone)

The day began with another early morning visit to capture the sunrise on another of the old barns located at Mormon Row. This was followed up with visits to the Chapel of the Transfiguration and Jenny Lake.

After lunch we began the drive over to West Yellowstone. This would take us through the West Thumb Geyser Basin where we stopped for an hour to photograph the various hot springs and thermal pools. I had visited this area for the first time in October 2011, although the colours in the pools were a lot more vibrant this time.

Another area that I had visited for the first time in October 2011 was the Firehole Lake Drive. When we arrived some very attractive cloud patterns were developing overhead. Unfortunately, they had lost much of their appeal by the time White Dome Geyser erupted.

So, here we are four days into the trip and the weather has been excellent, let’s hope it remains this way.
