Yellowstone photos

FYgrand1

Grand Geyser, at the beginning of an eruption.  This is the same
geyser on the left in the photo at the top of this page, and the one, along with the 1959 Hebgen Lake Earthquake, that sent Chuck 82 years back in time in Repeating History.  It is the tallest frequently-active geyser in the world, at 150-200 feet.

FYgrand2

Grand Geyser, towards the end of an eruption.  The mound geyser to Grand’s immediate left is Turban, which is used as a Grand eruption indicator, and the one shooting off to the further left is Vent.

FYgrand3

Grand’s crater, and the slope behind it.  Not much room to escape around, as Chuck found out.

FYalong_the_Firehole

Along the Firehole River in the Upper Geyser Basin.

FYGeyser_Hill

Geyser Hill, from near where the Byrnes had their camp in the Upper Geyser Basin.

FYcross_country

What the trail back to civilization probably looked like.

FYsteam_or_campfires

Indian fires?  Or just steam?  When you don’t know, it matters.

FYcutter

The “1870s sports car” Charley was enamored with, also known as a cutter.  This one is in the Museum of the Rockies, in Bozeman,
Montana.

FYFirehole_River_crossing

The ford where Charley and company escaped from hostile Indians for the second time.

FYOldFaithfulInn

The Old Faithful Inn, where Chuck stayed, and one of many places where James searched for him.
