We were guided by Spirit to spend four days visiting Yellowstone National Park and we arrived on September 6. It was a diverse and unique experience. We were shown geological wonders, saw at close quarters black bears, bison, elk stag with his harem of females, mountain goats, white wolves, coyotes, and more in their natural habitat. In the course of that amazing journey we encountered three spiritual people that Spirit had put in our way from whom we learned much and we, in turn, helped them on their journeys.
When we checked in to the Frontier Cabin we had booked, we were advised to contact Shaun as she was the Guest Experience Manager who would advise us as to the best way to explore Yellowstone. We were delighted with the arrangements Shaun made on our behalf and during the course of the four days, we got to know her well as she needed the Spiritual guidance we were able to provide in planning her ongoing journey through life. We gave her a copy of Journey of a Shaman.
Shaun arranged for an experienced Yellowstone guide, Amy, to spend a whole day driving us around the Southern Loop of Yellowstone. She showed us sights we had never seen before including steam geysers, sulphurous boiling springs, deep canyons, waterfalls, fast flowing rivers and rapids, a huge fresh water lake, mountains, pine forests, and at some points we were taken to nearly nine thousand feet above sea level. Amy was a fund of information. Over six hundred thousand years ago the area was a super volcano and for a large part of this huge area the high temperatures of the molten rock that lies only two miles below the surface makes it’s presence known in the form of the awe-inspiring geological features of the Park. There are approximately one thousand geysers on the planet of which five hundred are in Yellowstone National Park. The Park straddles three States: Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. The picture shows Amy with John.
The pictures below are a small selection of the many that we took.
The picture on the left is Porcelain Springs which covers a larger area each year and the magna of molten rock that causes this spectacle is intensely hot, with gases bubbling to the surface. Sadly, despite warning notices everywhere, there are a number of people who die each year by attempting to walk on the unstable surface and instantly suffer fatal third degree burns. The temperatures reach approximately 240 degrees F. It might be appropriate for all those involved in Frakking to witness this awe-inspiring sight.
We photographed this informative signboard.
Towards the end of our visit we met Michele who has lived in West Yellowstone for three years. She originates from Louisiana and decided to move to West Yellowstone in order to experience life in the mountains. She feels it is now time to move on to a new location which will further her journey in finding herself. It was perfect time for her to meet us and she was delighted to meet two Shaman and told us she is going to buy a copy of “Journey of a Shaman” as she feels that the messages in the book will help guide her on her journey.
Yellowstone 030 The last, but certainly not the least, part of this blog is a video that we took as we watched “Old Faithful”, a massive geyser that shoots upwards approximately 180 feet every few hours. It is spectacular to watch and is viewed every day by hundreds of visitors. This video is only the beginning as the video we took of the end result is too long to load here.
Part two of our visit to West Yellowstone will follow soon.
