McGee Family trip to Midway Geyser Basin
After camping for two nights at Madison Campground in the western part of the park, we headed for a long awaited visit to the Grand Prismatic Spring, Tuquoise and Opal Pools, and the Excelsior Geyser. The sight of steam rising from the meadows in the Lower Geyser Basin was just a hit of what was ahead.

We also got to stop and catch Old Faithful without making a production of it.
