Sorry for the infrequent posts; last week I was attending a photography workshop over the weekend so I couldn’t get organized in time to put a post together. This week, well, I’m late due to procrastination.
I’m doing a quick post to get this door photo up. During our recent trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming we made the trek to Yellowstone National Park but I was surprised to learn that Yellowstone closes the Park for the winter season. We made reservations to stay at the iconic Old Faithful Inn which was constructed in 1903 – 1904 and opened in 1904. It’s a beautiful rustic hotel and restaurant. More information about the Inn can be found from Wikipedia HERE; unfortunately, my cellphone shots didn’t turn out well to display them here. Our reservation at the Old Faithful Inn was for the last night that they were open before the winter closure so we had to explore a small section of the park while we could.
This is the entry door to the Old Faithful Inn from the inside; there was some light snowfall and it was cold so I didn’t stay outside to get the outside door shot but you can see some of the red exterior from the open door.
When we arrived there earlier in the afternoon it was near the time that the Old Faithful Geyser was going to do an eruption performance so we sat on the cold bench seats to get a front row view. During the performance I shot several photos and I found this interesting shot of Old “Lady” Faithful; it almost looks like a woman’s head with her hair piled on top of her head popping out of the geyser pit.
And during our exploration of the park the next morning we came across herds of bison, a Harrier Hawk, and a couple of coyotes but they were too far to make a good photo for publication; I’ll share a bison head shot as he walked several yards from me to get away from those pesky humans. Almost looks like the “buffalo” nickel.
Thank you for visiting my post and thanks again to Norm 2.0 for his creation of the Thursday Doors website that gives us bloggers an outlet to let our thoughts be put on paper or in this case, web space. For more posts and photos of doors by others please go to: Thursday Doors.
