We went to the cabin for a get away for Labor Day Weekend and decided to run into the park Thursday and beat the rush weekend rush.  Here’s a couple of pics from the two trips into the park (We went back in on Monday).  Janis and I hiked down to the brink of the lower canyon falls on Monday and that’s one of the pics here.  The other is a panorama taken on the north loop between Tower Falls and the Mammoth Hot Spring.  There are still scars visible from the big fire almost 30 years later.

We went back on Labor Day and there was so much smoke I don’t think any of the pics will turn out well.  The forest fires are unbelievable this year.

How many times do you watch Old Faithful before you get tired of it?  Never!  So if you don’t mind or even if you do here’s more photos of Old Faithful.  I want to say right off that you need to zoom into these and take a close look as the sun glints off of each droplet of water!   It’s really amazing – right place, right time.  The first five pictures are of the initial eruption which started at 1:07:29 ending at 1:07:38  pm.  Can I just say how much fun meta data is?  I took lots of pictures.  I’ve only shared a few here.  The last picture taken was at 1:08:16.  The eruption was winding down and ended about 1:11:12.  At least that’s when I stopped taking pics.  We had a ranger giving us a presentation about how it all works and cute little Emily (my granddaughter) kept going over and asking questions.  She’s three and I thought it was pretty cute.

This year we took some rookies into the park.  I have fond memories of my Gram and Granddad taking me through the park so I hope my grand kids had a good time as well.  Here’s a few pictures of paint pots and etc.  These pics are all taken at Biscuit Basin we had plans to visit one other basin, but the kids weren’t up to it.  There’s always next year and a good excuse to go back!  I’ll post Old Faithful and some other pics later.  I’m really liking the improvement in the new Photoshop.  Yes these are all post processed.  I shoot all of my pictures without letting the camera process the info at all.  It’s call shooting in RAW.  So I have to do something to them so you can enjoy them, and I hope you do.

There’s a nice walk along the river it’s located behind the Philadelphia Art Museum.  There are some really interesting things to see along this walk including the rowing club houses and the crews out rowing.  The orange buoys in the river mark the rowing course.  The fall colors where not quite in full yet, but we did some nice color in this shot.  This is a five shot handheld HDR of the river.
