How can one diss the most famous and the first National Park and get away with it. Well, I guess if I give it conditional passing marks it’s okay. So why would I not LOVE this park. It’s just too much like a theme park. From the scheduled eruptions of Old Faithful to the tourists taking photos (I know that includes me) at every “attraction”. Everywhere we went there was also talk of when and where wildlife was spotted. But as far as theme parks go this place definitely had “E” ticket rides. There were beautiful vistas coming into the park. The bubbling waters and steamy geysers were colorful, powerful and amazing. There was also the wildlife including the elk on the lawn of one of the lodges as we came into the park and the herd of bison on both sides of the road as we left the park. It’s worth the trip but I longed for the rugged, pristine and less crowed parks. They’re coming up.
