This was some of the easiest trail I’ve ever hiked. It was flat or slightly downhill all the way into Old Faithful from the border of the park and I was eating hot food by 12:30! The last few miles before reaching Old Faithful Village took us by some beautiful geysers and thermal pools. Unfortunately I only took photos of them on my other camera and not my phone and then forgot to copy them to my phone before I sent the camera home. We spent the rest of the day eating and lounging around. At 4pm, we hitched over to Grants Village in order to do laundry, shower and camp at a campground. Here we met about 10 northbounders and got to share stories of trail all night. It was nice to have a little bit of community and make new friends.
