Trek America | Day 32&33: Yellowstone

October 10, 2019 in travel, Trek America 2019

Yellowstone, the National Park in the USA I am pretty sure everyone has heard of. Here is what we got to see in our two day visit. This park is huge, you could definitely benefit with a longer stay here.

*On May 29th 2019, I travelled with Trek America on their Grand Trek tour for six weeks around the USA. We began in New York, travelling south to the West Coast, then North back to the East Coast. I am not affiliated with Trek America. Read all my Trek America posts here. *

West Thumb Geyser Basin

This was our first look at some hot springs. If you visit Yellowstone, check out this area as there is a good mix of everything to see on quite a short trail.

The colours are so beautiful, its crazy that these are natural formations.

Grand Canyon of Yellowstone

Later on we set off on a trail, which had really amazing views of Yellowstone. It’s crazy to believe that this is in Yellowstone, for me personally, this isn’t the landscape I pictured being in this national park.

Exploring Yellowstone

Unfortunately i’m not too sure whereabouts these pictures were taken. I think the first two were from the Grand Prismatic Spring. So many amazing views around Yellowstone and so different to the other national parks we visited.

Yellowstone – Fountain Freight Road Trail

Everyone else decided to head back to the campsite for the afternoon, whereas, Jürn and I wanted to go on a hike. I really had to push myself this day, I knew I would regret not hiking in Yellowstone.

Our leader sent us on a trail, little did we know this was right out in the open area of Yellowstone. We only saw a few people the whole time throughout the trail. If you are hiking in Yellowstone you need to be prepared with bear spray. I was kind of convinced if we were going to see any grizzlies, it was going to be here.

The more turns we went round, the more I was feeling nervous that a grizzly bear would appear. Luckily, we didnt encounter any. Near the end of the trail we found these hot springs, being out in the open area of Yellowstone, there were no barriers or paths.

Don’t go putting your feet in the hot spring…it will not end well….

Okay, Jürn was absolutely fine, it was just coincidence that the emergency services truck was there. When he uploaded the picture to Instagram there was an account which commented saying that he shouldn’t have left the designated path, however, they did not realise that we were on an open trail. The account is called Tourons of Yellowstone . Touron = tourist & moron. We still use the word now.
