あつい日にはつめたいおゆがとてもさわやかでした! - The cold water was so refreshing on

a hot day!

This is a continuation of my Yellowstone Trip report last August.

🔸️Day 8, Part 3:

I am going to devote a whole post to just one spot, but I felt it was truly special and I really treasure the photos I made that day.

We are still in Biscuit Basin on the west side of the park near Old Faithful.  When I researched hikes I came upon this trail to Mystic Falls. Not a long trail, but one I have not hiked before. It was the mid-day heat that made it a bit strenuous, but what a reward! Mystic Falls drops 70 feet (21 m) into the Little Firehole River and you get to see the river first, a little below the falls. I took the opportunity to cool off by wading into the water and taking in the lush scenery at the same time. Then you hike a short distance upstream to arrive at a viewpoint over the falls.

Now, I have seen a lot of waterfalls in my life, but this is certainly one of the most picturesque I have ever come across. Just a perfect spot, with the rocks and vegetation, it looks like a fantasy painting. I could have stood there for a long time, but I only had a few moments. My exhausted daughter had no energy to come up there with me and was waiting for me below... 😆

On the way back, we passed by some more thermal features in the basin.

I have one more episode to describe on this day, as we still had a long afternoon and evening of wildlife viewing to look forward to after this.

To be continued....

    @prairie makes sense, thank you! みず is any kind of water (neutral).

    @mina Thanks, I am glad people enjoy it! I am trying to finish it as soon as possible, but as I am going through the photos, I cannot select just a few, so it feels never ending now... 😃

    @Jake 水(みず) often refers to water that is not hot. For example, 水風呂 (みずぶろ) is a cold water bath. 焼酎の水割り (しょうちゅう の みずわり) is diluted with cold water and お湯割り(おゆわり) is with hot water.

    What a beautiful location! Du bist zu beneiden😆 I have a grammatical question 🙋‍♀️ Can you tell me what’s the difference between your sentence “I have not hiked before” and another with “never” instead of “not”?

    @Minatch Thank you, I love Yellowstone and so I keep coming back for more 😃 Ok, you can substitute never in this instance and the meaning remains exactly the same.

    @himawari どうもありがとう!It is good to hear the pronunciation. "Refreshing" is a tricky word, yes, but you did very well! You are always so cheerful. 😃
