After that exciting event we drove towards West Thumb where we stopped at the Continental Divide. The continental divide is the highest point on the continental plate. It is where the water feeds the Snake and Columbia Rivers to the west and the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers to the East. We completed our tour for the day with stopping and witnessing the huge canyon waterfalls and walking the Mudpots and the Dragon's caldron. It was an amazing trip with beautiful landscape and amazing features. Who would have known that Yellowstone has over 10,000 geo-hydrothermal features in its park. We were all sad to leave.
One of the highlights of the day was T having to have a book called, Who Pooped in the Park? Let's just say the rest of us felt Russ should write a book called, Where to Poop in the Park.
