I (Second installment)
The next morning after a good hot
, breakfast (such as our mother used to
cook) we were seated tn our coaches
and they bounded away one after an
other. We were all eager to see more
of the wonders of that mysterious land,
As we proceeded on our way, the land
scape seemed to unfold before us, emit
; ting one beauty spot after another, or
I soma wonderful phenomena, and inter
mingled with those was wild game
i sauntering along near the roadside,
! The birds were flitting about from tree
I to tree, while the porcupine, ground
; hogs, and other small animals, were
playing hide and seek around the rocks
; and down timber. They all seemed to
i realize that Uncle Sam stood behind
them and that they should nave no
fears for either "Dudes" or "Sav
We are now passing Obsidian (glass)
mountain, which is on our left It is a
strange looking formation of black
glass, and so hard, we were informed
by our guide, that in order to remove
the undetached debris, so that a road
might be built around the base of the
mountain, it was necessary to heat the
glass and while hot cold water was
thrown upon it and in that way it was
broken up and removed.
The next objects of interest were
Twin Lakes, to the right of us, each of
which was nearly half a mile in length
In one of these the water was as blue
as the sky above it, and in the other
one the water was as green as a Sham'
rock, while between and connecting
them w as a small lake whose water
was a rich brown color.
But we dare not linger, for we were
all anxious to know from whence came
all the great noise ahead of us, and soon
we were in sight of Koaring Mountain.
towering up nearly 8,000 feet above
sea level, and resembling a great ash
heap. There are many vents on the
side and top of the mountain from
which hot steam is continually escap
ing and from some of these caverns or
vents comes the hissing, roaring noise
like that or a thousand demons.
The steam and heat has long ago
killed the scattering trees that once
grew on the mountain unmolested, but
now their white trunks stand here and
there like scarred sentinels. A little
farther on and to our right was the
"Devil a Frying Pan, a wicked look
ing basin filled with frying, sputtering
stuff, that none but the devil might re I
Our next place of interest was Horn's
Geyser basin, where we saw the first
geysers on our trip, and which are
most wonderful and interesting. Among
them was the "Black urowlur, that
continally discharges black water and
steam with such a terrible force as to
cause a growling, hissing noise like
that of many demons. While we never
tire at looking at the beautiful pools
and geysers, many of which were
clothed in purity and innocence, we
were glad to move on, when we came
to the ' Black Growler.
We have left the field of geysers and
are going down the Gibbons Canyon.
following the pretty winding river by
that name, whose waters are as clear
as crystal and whose banks are dotted
here and here with chocolate and other
colored cones of vatiuus heights, rang

crater ot these the hot water is boiling.

which iB still different, so that now we
are passing the Fieryl Pool, with its
various colors, which are very beau
tiful. For some time we have been
slowly climbing up and up, until we
are several hundred feet above the
river, and are now looking at the great
falls. where the water is pouring over a
great precipice and dropping down into
a whirlpool below, from whence it
winds its way like a silver thread
through a deep gorge and around moes
covered boulders that are supporting
many evergreen trees that seem to be
imbedded in the very heart of the large
rock. We have now crossed the bridge
that spans the river a mile below the
falls, and have halted at the Gibbons
lunch camp, in the shade of towering
The morning ride through that mys
terious and beautiful country nearly a
mile and a half above the sea, had
whetted our appetites to a keen edge.
Oh, my 1 those hot rolls, butter, fried
trout, and then more trout, but I must
not dwell on good things to eat, for
there are many more wonders yet to be
seen, and after a rest of two hours we
are again on- the road, where we soon
leave the Gibbons river, with all its
grandeur, and cross the divide to Pine
Hole River, which we followed for sev
eral miles. Seemingly the farther we
drove the more romantic and fascinat
ing the grand panorama unfolded be
fore us, until we arrived at the Nez
Perce night camp, a historical spot,
where Cowen and his party were cap
tured in 1877 by Chief Joseph and his
wandering band of savages.
The camp is in the edge of a dense
forest and a hundred yards from Nez
Perce creek, where one may catch the
speckled beauties and by a turn can
cook them in a boiling pool a few feet
away. Dinner is now over and our
guide piloted us to another field of
wonders two miles distant, and one of
the strange eights was a mud geyser,
where the ashen colored mud was con
stantly being thrown into the air from
two to fifteen feet, and as it dropped
back into the crater the jets would
form themselves into shapes of various
vegetables, flowers, animals, birds,
etc., soon to settle down into the great
stir, there to be thrown out again and
again. It all seems so wonderful that
really we were mystified at its strange
actions. Among the other strange
things we saw was a well of black col
ored ink, and from which no doubt
there have been many effective love
letters written. -
On our return, the campfire was
lighted, and the evening was taken up
with singing, story telling, eating pop
corn, etc., and thus ended the second
day of our trip, on July 3, 1914.
As there were so many points of in
terest to visit on our third day, we left
camp at 7 a. m., and after a short drive
across a beautiful wild meadow dotted
over with many rare flowers, we
stopped at the Fountain Geyser just in
time to see the great column ot boiling
water thrown a hundred feet or more
into the air, and the millions of drops
in falling down looked in the sunlight
like so many diamonds. In the same
locality there were numerous other
geysers and pools, each one with its
own peculiar display, coloring and form
ation. Near by, too, is the Mammoth
Paint Pots, a boiling, bubbling mesa of
thick material in red, pink, yellow and
other colors, all stirred by the tireless
hand of nature, so that the colors blend
and the little jets' popping up have
formed a thousand little pyrmamids of
various colors.
On leaving that phenomenal field,
we diverted from the main road and
are now looking down into the deptha
of boiling pools, near Fine Hole Lake,
where a blue flame of Are intermingled
with the hot water a lew leet below
the surface. A little distance away is
the Black Warrior Geyser, a most
wicked looking crater, where, black
water and steam gushes forth in a most
terrible manner.
We have returned to the main road
and are passing many other pi sees that
are just aa wonderful, until we have
arrived at the Midway Oeyser Basin.
or "Hell a Half Acre, as it is aener
ally termed. But a few years since its
domain was enlarged oy a great explo
sion, so that now it rovers an acre of
space. To see the wonderful place,
we left our coaches and descended a
succession of steps to a foot bridge and

far down into the blue water at it boils
up and runa over at a lower place and
empties into the river at the rate of
4.000 gallons per minute, while the
steam rides in great clouds and floats
away. While we would like to linger
and study the mysterious wonders, we
dare not, for there arc yet to be seen
so many, other places that are not less
interesting, and as we go on, we puss

We are now at "Biscuit liasin. where
a hundred thousand biscuits, or forma
tions resembling them, have been taken
by the hand of nature from a bottom
less pool and rolled out, and are stand
ing on edge apparently to dry. The
biscuits were of uniform size and verv
strange and beautiful. We did not
sample them, but piocccded on our
way, and soon entered the Upper Gey
ser Basin, where a thousand wonders
were awaiting our arrival. We were
net a little surprised to see so manv
geysers, springs, pools, etc., and each
with its own special coloring, formation
and action. Among them was the
Morning Glory Spring, which name is
appropriate in every sense of the word.
Did you ever look I nto a blue or pur
ple morning glory when the final rays
of a summer's sun shown on its dewy
petals?? Did you see the blue and pur
ple tints as they glistened and sparkled
in the sunlight? Did you Bee the little
scalloped edges that formed its border?
Did you feel the power of love and
beauty while you gazed intensely into
its depths? Then increase its size ten
thousand times and you will have seen
the Morning Glory Spring in the Yel
lowstone National Park.
We have now stopped on the bridge
which spans the Fine Hole river and
are watching the display of River Side
Geyser. The cone is ten or twelve
feet high and stands immediately on
the brink of the river at an angle of 45
degrees, and from ita crater gushes
forth a great volume of boiling water
which is carried into the sir a hundred
feet, and then it raina down into the
Fine Hole river that runs along over
mossy rocks, undisurbed by the beauti
ful cone of red, yellow and gold. '
It is when the geyser is playing in
the sunlight that a pretty rainbow may
be seen, coming up over the river and
extending from one side to the other.
ab some oi the dudes are growing
thirsty, we again drive a little from
the main road to visit the Devil's
Punch Bowl, where a thousand little
demons are apparently stirring the
puncn as it bubbles over on all sides,
which is constantly building it higher
and higher.
