There is a webcam of Old Faithful at Yellowstone park here below. I hope you will go there and enjoy it. This version can be exploded to fit the full screen of your computer, if you would like to see your children being able to see this natural phenomenon, but can't afford the gasoline and travel costs to get there and stay the night after the sun sets, the screen will appear the same color as the part of the night it is in, usually black after 9 pm and before 5 am, shorter hours of light in the winter months, longer in the summer. At this moment in the morning of August 4, 2012, I am seeing steam right now. After a series of earthquakes in the 1980s, the geyser went from hourly to 1.2 to 1.5 hours per display of spraying. I'm not sure its present rate, because I haven't been there for several years now, having moved from the state of Wyoming 3 years ago.

Great Thread.

I've been to many National Parks out west. It's a pretty long list.

I was going to go to Acadia National Park one year and drive the Blue Ridge Parkway in the fall,
But I just wasn't motivated again. I was going to go camping in Hawaii, but the cost is prohibitive.
If it was for 2 weeks and 3-4 islands, but $2500.00 for a week at Volcanoes is out of line for me.
So I ended up settling for Yellowstone this winter at just under $600.00 and Vegas in March.

There's a State Park in Utah called Goblin Valley that I spent a day at. It's unique.
The West Elk Loop in Colorado was fun. The highlight is Gothic Natural area.
I've seen my share of bears in the wild. I had a moost sneak up on me frond behind
and nearly knock me over in the Tetons.

Finally climbing Devil's Tower is on my list. It's over $1200 with training. room and board.
You also get 2 days on the mountain. If there's 2 in a group, the price drops to about $900.00 each.

The Resiliant Earth: Appalachian Mountains
Where'd you get that map?

It's way off, ya know?

For instance, the Appalachian trail crosses from PA into NJ at the Delaware Water Gap.

According to the above map, the appalachions aren't even in NJ.

FWIW, I've spent a lot of time on the AT in the Northeast.

Incidently the Appalachion trail was build during Franklin Delanore Roosevelt's horrible socialismt experiement during the WPA years.

Another example of what government can and OUGHT TO BE doing.

Acadia is astonishingly inspiring, Wroberson. I hope you rethink going there and make the trip. It is so totally charming, I doubt describing it could do it justice. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register to forum by clicking here to see images.
