Firehole River Swimming Area

These are the last photos from the tour of Yellowstone National Park that I'll be posting. They are, starting with the first inset, a photo of the Firehole River north of Firehole Cascades, a photo of the cascades where the river drops into Firehole Canyon, a photo of Firehole Falls, and finally this photo of the Firehole River Swimming area. After passing the cascades and near the west entrance road where we began our tour, one arrives at the entrance to Firehole Canyon Drive, a one-way road that heads south again and comes out at the cascades. Along the way are the Firehole Falls and this swimming area. We've often gone there in the summer when it is hot. There is a quiet area and further up an area where one can jump into the river and float down a short series of cascades.

Firehole Lake

Firehole Lake Drive, a short one-way road, is on the lower west side of Yellowstone National Park. At the far end of the road are three spring-fed lakes, this one, Firehole Lake, which drains into Black Warrior Lake and that into Hot Lake. The geysers here are Young Hopeful on the right and Artesia in the back. We are in San Antonio, Texas, and visited the Alamo twice yesterday, the second time at night, and are leaving shortly to bike the mission trail, visiting missions Concepion, San Juan, San Jose, and Espada. It is a beautiful, sunny day here, about 70F (21C). We'll take some snacks along and will be gone all day.
