After saying goodbye to Chris & Teresa, we started our journey west. On our way to Yellowstone, we made a stop at Craters of the Moon National Monument in Idaho, the site of old volcanic activity with old lava flows, craters, lava tubes, etc.

Through the lava tube we go!
After leaving Craters of the Moon, we had a few more hours to Yellowstone. We got there by evening, got camp set up & were ready to head out exploring the next morning.
Our first stop was a sulphur spring... the kids plugged their noses the whole time!
It was drizzly on & off, but that didn't keep us from exploring the Artist Paint Pots area! There were lots of cools springs & bubbling mud pots.
We took another walk around the Norris Geyser basin since the clouds finally cleared...
