"I hope your heart won't have to hurt anymore, because it's really not that sad from here."

-Memory Vague

Yesterday was yet another successful day off. Charlie, Brandi, Dillon and I hiked out to Blacksand Basin. It was almost 40 degrees outside which felt wayyyy too warm. We were all sweating like crazy, to the point where Charlie and Dillon finally just took their shirts off. Other than the uncomfortable heat, it was a very nice day to be outside.

"If you were a storm, this is how you would feel."


Brandi and I had the same day off today, so we decided to walk out to the Geyser Basin. Once we got out there, it was so nice that we decided to walk all the way to Biscuit Basin. The way back was pretty tough, seeing as how we couldn't find the trail. But we made it! Yay for us.

"I felt like crying to your half-asleep heart, no reason really, sometimes I just fall apart."

-Catie Curtis

On my last day off, my friend Dillon had the day off as well. We were both in the mood to get out and see the park, so we went on the 8 hour Canyon Tour. It was very cold, especially at the end of the day when we were hit by a storm. But it was absolutely beautiful. It's amazing how different this park is in the winter compared to the summer. It's a whole different world.

Here is a video that I made of the pretty day that we had. Enjoy!

"She has decided to pretend to fall asleep. Not because she is tired. Because she needs to think."

I had today off and I decided to go for a walk around the Geyser Basin. It was soooo pretty. I can't wait for my next day off.

I started out at Old Faithful and walked along the boardwalk.

I had never seen Castle Geyser erupt before, but I got to see it today! It was beyond amazing. At one point there was so much steam around me that I couldn't even see where I was.

After the eruption was over, I walked for another hour. I wanted to stay out way longer, but my face was starting to freeze. Shucks.
