18:39:00 <ynpvisitor97> ;.; should have done norris instead
19:59:49 <ynpvisitor39> hi
23:09:00 <ynpvisitor23> BHI ie
23:35:10 <Tsun> still bhi
23:50:40 <ynpvisitor23> OF 0650 ie
23:56:13 <Jimbo> Grand ie, too steamy to see much water
00:05:40 <Tsun> so is there any other vent besides close to vent in between indicator and beehive
00:06:38 <lc> close to cone
00:07:33 <Tsun> yeah just the 3, funny i saw it on the 26th on the webcam how rare it is
00:08:30 <lc> not that rare but mostly in winter time.
00:09:16 <lc> and spring, I guess.
00:10:05 <lc> also one on the other side of cone.
00:12:10 <lc> hope we get some pictures of Steamboat.
00:13:39 <ynpvisitor38> I wonder how many visitors were lucky enough to be there
00:14:18 <lc> maybe we will get more detail soon.
00:14:18 <Tsun> i was in the park but not at norris x.x also whats the name of the one on the other side of the vent, i think thats the one i saw
00:14:51 <lc> at BH?
00:15:12 <Tsun> yeah
00:15:16 <lc> don't know it has a name.
00:15:26 <Tsun> ah
00:15:35 <Tsun> guess thats why i wasn't aware of it:/
00:19:40 <Tsun> why would geyser times list terra cotta as uncommon, though that depends on which terra cotta it means
00:23:47 <Jimbo> Found a Steamboat steam phase image via Twitter: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BQjdPSPCEAIIelL.jpg
00:27:51 <Jimbo> It would be hard to believe in this era of smartphones that NOBODY got a video of the Steamboat eruption!
00:28:38 <ynpvisitor38> I bet there are dozens of them... youtube when the people get home!
00:29:23 <Jimbo> Exactly - they might not be regular gazers and know the connections to make a video known in the gazer community.
00:43:08 <ynpvisitor38> ..
00:43:49 <ynpvisitor38> I'd like to see a video from someone on the far side of the basin to see some height

01:22:34 <lc> morning Jenna
01:22:52 <Jenna> morning
01:23:23 <Jenna> not sure if this is part of the eruption or the steam phase https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151752308974329
01:24:25 <Jenna> comments are suggesting steam
01:26:18 <ynpvisitor38> what is that link Jenna?
01:27:20 <Jenna> a 30 sec vid of steamboat
01:27:33 <Jenna> steam phase I believe
01:28:31 <Jimbo> steam phase; it's at night - the steam phase started in daylight, with the eruption beginning at 730 PM local time
01:29:26 <ynpvisitor38> Micah's vid? I saw that.
01:35:26 <Jenna> the one I posted was not Michah's
01:35:30 <Jenna> Micah's*
01:36:01 <ynpvisitor38> ok thx
01:37:34 <ynpvisitor2> Daisy is ie on static 0837
01:39:21 <Jimbo> Steam phase, darn it, but Steamboat's steam phase is famous, too
01:39:42 <Jenna> I haven't seen a video of the water phase yet, wonder if anyone even got one?
01:40:09 <Jimbo> It was late in the day, might not have been many people at Norris -- it only takes one
01:40:50 <ynpvisitor2> Probably someone out there with a video that has no idea what they have.
01:42:24 <Jenna> true
01:55:09 <Janet> Good morning! :)
02:05:17 <ynpvisitor38> .
02:13:08 <Kevin L> I gave Dave teh "Close, But No Cigar" Award in geyser gazing for his misses yesterday.
02:17:26 <kc (working)> i just updated the wiki page :)
02:36:26 <Tsun> well thats certainly helpful, found a google map downloader.
02:43:59 <Jenna> .
02:50:32 <Tsun> example if interested. http://dropcanvas.com/h7br4
02:56:50 <Kevin L> bhi ie 0946
03:16:46 <ynpvisitor19> Well at least splashes
03:18:09 <Kevin L> You never know. It looked like it was on preset. vw should be here in a few.
03:21:06 <ynpvisitor19> Does not look promissing
03:21:25 <Kevin L> Nope.
03:21:59 <ynpvisitor19> I did see splashes, can we call it a minor?
03:22:50 <Kevin L> I think we should. I did get some splashes when I zoomed it. I am sure hoping the 6 to 8 day interval is not going to be the norm.
03:25:18 <ynpvisitor19> Is that cub?
03:25:19 <ynpvisitor26> Lion looks more promising.
03:25:47 <Kevin L> I would guess it is due.
03:25:57 <Kevin L> LC is ie.
03:28:25 <ynpvisitor19> Can you just hear the tourests saying "is that all they do?"
03:29:02 <ynpvisitor19> Told ypou martha it was not worth the walk all the way up here.
03:29:30 <ynpvisitor19> Lets go see OF and go home.
03:30:07 <Kevin L> "I think we can see it from the car at the Inn parking lot".
03:30:43 <Kevin L> Well, I need to hit the shop. Looks like another dud.
03:31:31 <ynpvisitor26> First we should see Morning Glory. The most beautifull thing in the park. (before 1955)
03:58:47 <ynpvisitor38> ...
03:59:39 <vw> Good morning!
04:00:32 <Kevin L> Hello vw. Missed the big day yesterday.
04:00:41 <Micah> I am getting links for my Steamboat videos for you guys...be up asap.
04:01:14 <vw> First hint I got was waking to see I missed a middle of the night call from Will. Figured something big, so checked GT right away. Wow!
04:01:34 <vw> Congratz Micah! You got the golden achievement in gazing!
04:02:10 <Micah> I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E
04:02:13 <Kevin L> Poor Dave missed F&M by 90 minutes and then missed BH.
04:02:29 <vw> Oh no!
04:02:44 <Kevin L> Worth coming out ot work att the park Micah?
04:02:58 <Kevin L> Then to be that close to Steamboat. What a day.
04:03:08 <lc (bbl)> Micah, did you see Steamboat?
04:03:11 <Jimbo> Micah, anyone get a video of the water phase?
04:03:33 <Micah> lc I saw the steamphase 3 hours after the start.
04:03:48 <Micah> Jimbo reports are coming in we may have SEVERAL. FROM THE START.
04:03:49 <lc> ok
04:05:02 <Kevin L> Can you believe you have a picture today vw?
04:05:36 <vw> That was the other big surprise I got this morning Kevin. Text from CC alerted me to that fact. Couldn't believe it either!
04:05:40 <Tsun> hi micah
04:06:03 <Micah> hi tsun
04:06:11 <Jimbo> Excellent
04:06:25 <Kevin L> More amazing than Steamboat.
04:06:46 <vw> Well... maybe not MORE amazing, but maybe as rare? :D
04:07:16 <Kevin L> Good point.
04:07:43 <Kevin L> I did get a good Aurum yesterday though.
04:09:03 <vw> So a good geyser day all around. We are fairly limited on what we can see. You catching Aurum is a good sign K.
04:09:13 <Micah> https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=557483430975429&set=o.4939307398&type=2&theater
04:09:24 <Micah> Steam phase this morning
04:10:57 <vw> Micah, will you also post to youtube for us FB avoiders?
04:11:23 <Kevin L> Not only Aurum, BH too! And I did see the F&M steam. didn't know what it was, but I saw it!
04:11:45 <lc> aqnd us that don't have flash player.
04:12:14 <vw> lc, can you watch youtube without flash? I guess I never thought about that.
04:12:34 <ynpvisitor38> why avoid FB, it is awesome for up to date reports from the field
04:12:44 <Kevin L> I didn't think you could get streaming without flash.
04:12:53 <lc> never had a problem with youtube.
04:13:07 <vw> good to know that lc. Thank you.
04:13:33 <lc> well, it said I need upgrade.
04:14:03 <vw> Daisy 1113 ie, static cam.
04:14:28 <ynpvisitor11> LC did Kitt see Beehive? Or F & M?
04:14:53 <Kevin L> I think she got F&M, but not from the start. Not sure about BH.
04:15:04 <ynpvisitor11> ty
04:15:04 <lc> I think she saw most of F&M, don't know abbout BH
04:15:43 <ynpvisitor11> Good
04:16:42 <vw> OF 1116
04:16:53 <lc> nice start
04:20:47 <vw> .
04:22:24 <kc (working)> http://tinyurl.com/pqr25sn
04:24:26 <Jimbo> Yeah, Steamboat eruption is in the news today
04:27:15 <vw> thunderstorm here in Blgs. If I disappear, cam will go back to preset.
04:31:15 <Jimbo> checking out for awhile
04:31:39 <vw> Bye Jimbo
04:32:13 <ynpvisitor1> "Unlike Old Faithful, which spews water like clockwork every hour-and-a-half," ok, I guess that's true relative to Steamboat intervals

06:36:46 <vw> BHI 1336 ie
06:38:19 <vw> BH 1337
06:38:32 <vw> I'll be danged.
06:38:45 <Jenna> wow
06:38:46 <ynpvisitor1> whoa
06:38:47 <Jenna> two this week for me
06:39:10 <vw> ding?
06:39:13 <vw> ding?
06:39:16 <vw> ding?
06:39:18 <ynpvisitor1> ha
06:40:00 <ynpvisitor1> just got back to the computer....was not expecting this!
06:40:10 <Jenna> wind is keeping it short
06:40:38 <ynpvisitor1> I wonder if BH went overnight, too? is this a double interval?
06:41:00 <vw> I don't know that we have any way of knowing unless someone saw it.
06:41:23 <ynpvisitor1> well, better than 7 day interval!
06:41:42 <vw> As compared to intervals before it went quiet, yes, this would have been an approximate double interval.
06:42:26 <vw> I should have said 'relatively quiet."
06:44:23 <vw> Daisy 1344
06:44:32 <vw> ns
06:53:45 <Jimbo> Good to see BH went again
06:57:28 <vw> Grand 1357
06:58:42 <Jimbo> Nice and clear today, good show
06:59:28 <vw> Riverside due. May be visible on static cam, but wind may blow steam down and away from cam view
07:01:33 <vw> OF due soon too.
07:23:28 <vw> OF 1423
07:26:46 <vw> Nap time.
07:26:57 <vw> Nothing much due until next OF.
07:35:23 <Lori> ah, BH sneaked in on me again :( Outside picking sweet corn. How did it know?
07:36:11 <Jenna> you and kevin must be on it's "list"
07:36:58 <Lori> yeah, it didn't expect me on the early morning one....it proved I was on the list this winter
07:51:32 <Lori> back to working on corn- later all
08:07:07 <Jenna> .
08:23:26 <Kevin L> What! BH again!!!???
08:24:09 <lc> I missed it again
08:24:41 <Kevin L> I missed this one too.
08:25:07 <lc> hope Kitt got it, she is going home tomorrow.
08:25:12 <vw> It was a surprise.
08:25:34 <lc> many people on the BW?
08:26:33 <vw> Not at first. Several appeared before it was done though.
08:26:41 <vw> Might have ran over from Grand.
08:26:53 <Kevin L> Well I hope this is a sign of things to come. Wonder if Dave got it.
08:31:41 <vw> Guessing a storm is over the UGB. People leaving n a hurry there.
08:33:08 <Kevin L> Can't be that bad. Look at the clouds.
08:34:08 <vw> Don't know about the Park, but we are under thunderstorm advisories all day here in Blgs. Wouldn't want to be caught out in the open maybe?
08:35:05 <Kevin L> I can see it if there is lightning, but it looks like just a bit of rain.
08:35:28 <Kevin L> Unless there is one mean little cloud out there.
08:35:55 <vw> Had a few seconds of pretty serious shaking of the cam there. No way to tell what was coming off the hills.
08:36:50 <vw> It got pretty dark there for a bit too. Seems to have passed now.
08:39:35 <vw> No numbers?
08:39:37 <vw> Wow.
08:41:59 <Jenna> spoke too soon
08:42:16 <lc> g
08:42:25 <vw> It is so rare to have everybody identified anymore.
08:47:19 <vw> OF 1546
08:50:52 <vw> Lion puffing. A series for the evening would be nice.
08:53:01 <ynpvisitor75> Go Split Cone!
08:59:58 <vw> Lion 1559 ns
09:00:04 <vw> LC 1559 ie
09:00:23 <vw> Lion is an initial
09:00:55 <Kevin L> No, Lion is a name. LC is initials.
09:01:06 <vw> hehe
09:01:38 <Kevin L> I've been working the cam too many hours.
09:02:51 <vw> It does get to you after a while, doesn't it K?
09:04:53 <vw> Wind is really swirling around in the basin. Can't decide what direction it is going to blow.
09:07:09 <Graham> hello, did I miss anything? wow another BH?
09:07:12 <vw> Hi Graham..
09:07:24 <vw> Yeap. Surprises abound today.
09:07:48 <Graham> other surprises today?
09:08:05 <vw> Some links to videos of yesterday's Steamboat in the logs. I believe also posted on FB.
09:08:39 <vw> I hadn't heard about Steamboat until I awoke this morning, so it was a surprise for me today.
09:09:23 <Graham> yeah i saw it at work and thought it was going to be a guest post, but nope its for real
09:09:26 <Graham> GO STEAMBOAT
09:09:32 <vw> Only time posted from the basin on GT today is Fountain, so guessing anybody who is in the park is at Norris or LGB.
09:10:15 <vw> "anybody" = gazers, that is.
09:10:53 <Kevin L> Dave was going to Mystic Falls today. With his luck the creek probably dried up.
09:11:09 <vw> Daisy 1610
09:11:53 <Graham> i am sure a lot of people trecked to Norris. Glad Micah got there soon after the eruption to get the best of the steam phase. I see Udo went there per FB posting
09:17:07 <Maureen> sad news that Brenda Taylor, Ralph's wife, passed today.
09:17:22 <Maureen> Ralph made it back from Jackson in time
09:19:00 <Graham> yeah i saw that, glad he was home in time
09:19:24 <Graham> she has had a rough time the last few years, so its a blessing in a way that she is not suffering any more
09:20:26 <Maureen> she had been doing so well though.
09:21:04 <Maureen> Sad it had to happen during his vacation time too.
09:21:33 <Maureen> I do not think there will be many gazers in the basin this coming week
09:21:48 <Maureen> lots of folks leaving today and tomorrow
09:22:12 <Graham> all going to Norris - did you go today?
09:22:17 <Maureen> Dave saw GF and FTN today
09:22:35 <Maureen> no, did not go. Not too interested in steam phase and empty Cistern spring.
09:22:36 <vw> Good for Dave.
09:22:58 <Maureen> Micah is a riot though, sure is excited about it all
09:22:59 <vw> (Hi Maureen. sorry Imissed your entrance. Stepped away for a few minutes.)
09:23:10 <Maureen> hey vw, no worries
09:23:33 <Maureen> I posted it on GT when I saw Rosa's post on FB, Will has since corrected it
09:23:45 <Maureen> the eruption was only 9 minutes
09:24:04 <Maureen> I do hope it keeps erupting though
09:24:33 <Maureen> hard to figure out, Norris is a ways from UGB where gazers stay
09:24:59 <Maureen> In 2005, I missed it by 2 hours, saw steam phase then, it was, well, steamy.
09:25:28 <Graham> it makes a nice roaring sound tho
09:25:45 <Maureen> yeah, there is that.
09:25:51 <Maureen> have you heard it G?
09:27:20 <Maureen> news from Dave...the hike was great, he is going to catch evening Grand
09:29:48 <Graham> i was there about 10 hours after the 2002 Sept eruption, not like the early steam but you could see Cistern draining
09:29:54 <vw> Good news. Glad they had a good hike.
09:30:54 <vw> I need to head out.
09:31:03 <vw> Cam on OF preset.
09:31:11 <vw> Hope everybody has a great evening.
09:31:15 <Maureen> bye vw
09:31:43 <Graham> bye vw
09:31:50 <Graham> i can grab it for a while
09:31:59 <Maureen> the steam phase in the video on FB is impressive, it was not quite that loud when I saw it.
09:32:29 <Graham> i feel cheated, nothing sue :)
09:32:58 <Maureen> sue? sue cheated on you again?
09:33:05 <Graham> at least our mystery guests won't be complaining because theres nothing i can miss
09:33:17 <Graham> here due
09:33:40 <Maureen> well, have a good night. Just checked in to tell folks about Brenda.
09:34:21 <alex (at work)> OK, I have maybe 30 seconds to finally watch today, time for a big eruption!
09:34:45 <alex (at work)> even if it is split cone!
09:35:29 <Graham> sorry alex, npothing happening
09:36:48 <Maureen> YNP shared Udo's photo of Cistern
09:37:07 <Maureen> the travel website that is
09:37:48 <Graham> so we had F&M BH and Steambopat in one day
09:37:54 <Graham> shame Morning didn't erupt too
09:38:18 <Maureen> Morning is tired I guess, only 33 minute FTN this afternoon too
09:38:36 <Graham> ah, its not on GT yet
09:39:12 <Graham> theres a geyser :)
09:39:13 <Graham> LC
09:39:20 <Maureen> Polly sais Steve would post it
09:39:34 <Graham> k
09:39:57 <alex (at work)> steamboat? was it a major?
09:39:58 <Graham> so not going for the midnight one then?
09:40:12 <Graham> yes it was a Major
09:40:40 <Maureen> well, it is between minor and major at 9 minutes from what has been posted
09:40:41 <alex (at work)> wow. I didn't see it on GT....
09:40:57 <Maureen> it was posted late last night and this morning you would not see it
09:41:02 <alex (at work)> That is what, the first one in how many years?
09:41:10 <Maureen> 8
09:41:26 <Maureen> I have not been in the park in days
09:42:02 <alex (at work)> that makes me happy and sad at the same time
09:42:16 <alex (at work)> now we know where all that plume and BH pressure has been going!!!
09:42:37 <alex (at work)> anyone get video?
09:42:53 <ynpvisitor58> good one
09:42:57 <Maureen> ha ha Alex, that is very silly
09:43:13 <Maureen> And BH erupted both yesterday and today, so there goes that theory
09:43:37 <alex (at work)> well I am full of goofy theories!
09:43:46 <alex (at work)> ....well I am full of something anyway
09:44:10 <alex (at work)> I am happy steamboat went but sad I missed it
09:46:29 <Maureen> how could you have seen it?
09:46:51 <Maureen> be there at the exact 9 minutes it decided to erupt? Everyone says that, yet it is not an easy thing to do.
09:47:28 <Graham> there have been a few sits, but not waiting for it to come out of an 8y dormancy
09:47:34 <Maureen> Maybe it will keep erupting and develop a pattern. It has a monitor on it, though with its steam phase, folks KNOW when it has erupted
09:47:39 <Maureen> [']]]]]]23
09:47:54 <Maureen> ha ha, that is my cat's contribution to the chat
09:48:09 <Maureen> she loves walking across my keyboard
09:48:11 <alex (at work)> I thought I heard thunder in Idaho last night, but maybe it was Steamboat
09:48:21 <Maureen> Suzanne caught it once with paul I know
09:48:24 <Graham> the 32 day interval in 2003 got some people out there
09:49:02 <Graham> back in the 80s it had a series that people were camped out there
09:49:07 <alex (at work)> I bet there are some people sitting there now
09:49:23 <ynpvisitor53> Mrs. Butterworth (Decker) had some very productive sits.
09:49:25 <Graham> just enjoying the steam, too early for another now
09:49:46 <Maureen> is that for real 53? that is her name?
09:50:36 <ynpvisitor53> No, I always forget her real name when taking about her so resort to Butterworth. Decker is correct.
09:51:09 <Maureen> and she saw more than one Steamboat from start?
09:51:31 <ynpvisitor53> dozens
09:51:52 <Maureen> in what year?
09:52:05 <Maureen> was she working at Norris?
09:52:11 <ynpvisitor53> There is a recent article. I will go look.
09:52:23 <ynpvisitor53> No, she was a tourist.
09:53:07 <Maureen> she must have been a long term tourist to catch dozens of them.
09:53:50 <Maureen> dozens, implying over 24
09:53:51 <ynpvisitor58> Tantalus geyser used to be named Decker Geyser
09:54:15 <Maureen> so maybe a summer resident in Gardiner?
09:54:53 <ynpvisitor53> I'll se if I can find the correct number, but it was multiple.
09:55:25 <Maureen> that must have taken a lot of perseverance
09:55:42 <ynpvisitor53> Two Steamboat starts counts as dozens in my book :)
09:55:49 <Maureen> ha ha
09:56:00 <Maureen> that sounds more reasonable
09:56:19 <ynpvisitor53> http://yellowstoneinsider.com/2013/07/10/mystery-of-helen-decker-and-deckers-geyser-solved/
09:57:51 <ynpvisitor53> Yellowstone Treasures says 10
09:58:01 <Maureen> thanks 53.
09:59:44 <Maureen> 10 in 2 decades, that is a lot of waiting.
09:59:53 <Maureen> glad they made her a shady spot
10:04:21 <ynpvisitor58> ..
10:09:05 <Tsun> with luck we will get 3 of them like 2003 did
10:11:27 <Maureen> GT only has info since 91
10:11:46 <Maureen> hey, a geyser may erupt soon
10:12:44 <Graham> if Grand is due I could watch for BHI?
10:12:55 <Maureen> yes, yes you could
10:13:20 <ynpvisitor58> I wonder what the minors looked like this week
10:13:30 <Graham> OF 1712
10:13:44 <Maureen> wow, i had 1713
10:13:52 <Maureen> Lion
10:14:02 <Graham> not sure the unfriendly number is here now
10:14:22 <Graham> 1713 on Lion
10:14:23 <Maureen> is Lion ini?
10:14:35 <Graham> OF splashes started at 1712 but didnt go high till 13
10:14:43 <Maureen> hmmm
10:14:43 <Graham> second Lion
10:14:48 <Maureen> that was a small OF
10:16:14 <Graham> still a long tho
10:21:53 <Graham> wow Steamboat is on NBC news
10:22:33 <Maureen> crazy, how things get picked up today.
10:22:52 <Graham> they showed a short clip of the steam phase - the video thats turned on its side part way through
10:23:04 <Maureen> ha ha, too funny
10:23:17 <Maureen> did they show it turn?
10:28:02 <kc (working)> conewalker
10:28:24 <Maureen> follow him
10:28:39 <Maureen> G, where are you?
10:28:44 <kc (working)> heading towards OF
10:29:02 <Maureen> yes, G has the controls though and is not moving
10:29:34 <Maureen> can you see him on static?
10:29:46 <kc (working)> yep
10:30:00 <Jenna> oh my
10:30:05 <kc (working)> on split cone now
10:30:14 <kc (working)> which is ie
10:31:04 <kc (working)> jumping on Graham to get a look at this knucklehead
10:31:35 <Jenna> looks like someone might have said something to him
10:31:42 <Maureen> I tried to send him word
10:32:04 <kc (working)> getting scolded now
10:32:06 <ynpvisitor91> ranger on the scene
10:32:19 <Graham> sorry, stepped away
10:32:37 <kc (working)> np, im jumping off now
10:32:55 <Maureen> yeah for scolding rangers
10:33:10 <Jenna> why doesn't it occur to them that no one else is out there
10:33:20 <kc (working)> meant to say jumping on the cam, not jumping on Graham : )
10:33:28 <Graham> happens when i get food, at least our numbered friend isn't here :)
10:34:11 <Maureen> ha ha KC
10:34:53 <Graham> SC
10:35:01 <Graham> thought you were all messaging me about that :)
10:35:18 <ynpvisitor91> but Split Cone was erupting! can't blame him
10:35:23 <Kevin L> Hey why isn't the cam pointed at Old Faithful? Isn't this the Old Faithful streaming cam?
10:35:45 <Kevin L> Just wanted you to feel at home Graham.
10:35:51 <ynpvisitor91> it's the increased popularity of Split Cone that has caused this
10:36:01 <ynpvisitor58> can we have a look at Grand?
10:36:11 <ynpvisitor91> hahah
10:36:28 <ynpvisitor58> numbers rule
10:38:27 <Maureen> G does not listen to numbers, you must identify yourself
10:50:26 <Ryan> Busy 48 hours huh? :D
10:52:12 <Graham> been pretty quiet all day
10:52:40 <Ryan> Oh, I am sure Giantess will be soon ;)

11:14:28 <Graham> get more than 3h of Giantess tho
11:14:54 <Ryan> Well yes, but after 3 hours some people have to get... not bored, but, complacent

12:50:15 <ynpvisitor89> how long was today's indicator?
12:51:50 <kcmule> not sure
12:53:29 <kcmule> 1336ie was only noticed a moment before bh erupted
12:54:10 <ynpvisitor89> Was watching one of the PBS national park specials. Showed FDR in his car next to OF.
12:55:03 <ynpvisitor89> Anyone know the history of the blacktop path down past F&M? Was it a raod in the good ol days?
12:55:17 <Kevin L> Yest it was
12:56:13 <ynpvisitor89> Any idea when it closed? I seem to remember hot having to walk as a kid.
12:56:33 <kcmule> http://oi40.tinypic.com/292pwz9.jpg
12:57:28 <Kevin L> The old road went from Biscuit basin up past Artemisia, Grotto, Daisy, between the Inn & OF past the Lodge and connected up south of that to existing road. Believe it was closed about 1970.
12:57:38 <ynpvisitor89> Look no board walks, and they are not falling in.
12:59:31 <ynpvisitor89> None of them looked like lawyers either.
13:01:41 <ynpvisitor89> Sounds about right time frame. Back when they sold stale doughnuts to feed the bears. Used the $ to run water at the terrices I think.
13:02:30 <ynpvisitor89> Well I will let you see the odd BH. Got to go eat. All that talk of doughnuts got to me.
13:03:01 <kcmule> bye
