The geyser must have been spouting cold I

freezing as it gushed over the sides of the I
crater. I
On the opposite bank of the Firehole I

it on this frosty morning, was mooting H

It was simply a beaten trail over the snow. I

around it. like the tire around a wheel,
which kept the Icy center detached from
the land.
The grandest siirht in the park is beyond
question the lower falls of the Yellowstone.

of the beautiful sight presented by the Falls
