Picking up where we left off on my last post…we had just finished Yellowstone entering at the south entrance and made our way counter clockwise around the lower loop.
We were so tired and were on our way back to the hotel, but the route we were taking went directly past OLD FAITHFUL! How could we not stop??
The complex in this area is huge! Besides the actual geyser(s), there is an education building, store, Old Faithful Inn and more. We parked and headed directly to Old Faithful. It was supposed to erupt within the next 15 minutes, so we had good timing. It was late afternoon/early evening by this time. Around part of it is a boardwalk area with seating. We found an empty spot to wait and watch. This little guy came to join us:
We didn’t have to wait very long, and there she blows! I would caution you to pay attention to which way the wind may be blowing. If it’s blowing towards you, think about moving to a different spot so you can see.
We did come here another day and I have more photos that I will include in that post!
After watching, we headed over to check out the Old Faithful Inn.
The lobby was beautiful and rustic. Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is modeled after this hotel.
We had one more day planned here in Yellowstone, so we headed back to eat dinner at our lodge (Headwaters at Flagg Ranch). The name of the restaurant was Sheffields. They are open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I thought I took a picture of the menu, but in my hangry moment, I guess I forgot! I do know we were starving, and everything on the menu looked good. Here’s what we ordered:
Pork Pot Stickers:
These were realllyyyyyy good!
Kid’s Meal, Hot Dog and Fries
Also good! She ate it all.
Pasta Alfredo with Broccoli and Chicken
Also good! Huge portion. She could not even eat 1/4 of it.
Ribeye with Loaded Baked Potato and Veggies
This was very good too!
Overall, we had a really good meal.
Next up….Grand Teton National Park!
