Unfortunately, the steam did take a bit away from viewing the geysers and some of my favorite pools. We did get to peek at a few of the deep blue pools though and the gorgeous blue skies of the day certainly helped with the experience! I loaned my camera to Ed for the day which was great because he got some great shots of not only the scenery but me and kids which is a rarity.
We also saw these guys and with the help of some zoom/cropping have at least a little digital proof:
And we were all ready for some good barbecue at the end of the long day.
