Yellowstone National Park
Join us in this episode where we journey into Yellowstone National Park on a very brisk fall day, test out our new camera and shoot Old Faithful in 4K. Stick around until the end of the video for details on our winter plans in Quartzsite.
Old Faithful is the most popular attraction in Yellowstone National Park, and everyone who visits for the first time should watch this most famous geyser erupt. She is so grand and a must-see every time when visiting Yellowstone National Park. Make sure you check out our video here of Old Faithful in all her glory!
Yellowstone was one of our first National Parks we visited years ago when our girls were younger. Since then we have been a few more times and each time it is just as stunning as the last.
We have still not seen all of her beauty, the park is so large that it covers almost 4,000 square miles. Yellowstone National Park is so large it is located in the northwest corner of Wyoming, and includes small areas of Montana and Idaho as well.
