This is a bizarre "National Park" in that there is nothing to it. They wanted a park to connect Yellowstone NP with Grand Teton NP, so they made this one. There is only one place to stop and that is this "visitor's center". The mosquitoes were so bad here I literally jumped out of the car, snapped some pictures, went inside the building for 5 second, then left. It doesn't even have its own webpage. They use part of the Grand Teton NP webpage.

 

 

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone NP

View of my father back in 1997 and me in 2010 during an Old Faithful eruption.

 

 

Yellowstone NP

Rainbow with eruption. I'm pretty sure this is Old Faithful erupting but there was another nearby geyser erupting about the same time, so I am not positive.

        I love this spring. The water is so clear you can see right                  My wife and recently born child doing the geyser hike near old faithful.

Stopped to take a geology geek picture of the Continental Divide. However, I think the water ended up going in the same direction, so I think the sign is a bit off.
