July 19, 2015: Firehole Canyon Drive is a two mile, one way loop that runs off of the main road (Grand Loop) around Yellowstone to Old Faithful area with many scenic sights and even a swimming hole. RVs and busses are prohibited.
Parking is not always easy to find, but there are some pull-offs alongside the road with worthwhile views like this.
Waterfalls are always worthwhile views and Firehole Falls is a nice one.
In this area, a path leads to the water where you can take a dip in the cool waters of the Firehole River.
I really enjoyed this vantage point.
Looking to the side, you can check out this cave.
One of the nicest parts of this drive for me is that I was able to share it with my friend, Judy, another solo fulltime RVer who I first met in Austin – so it was especially cool to meet up with her here. This spot was at another pull-off along the way with a trail to Fairy Falls. We never made it there, but the day was a great one anyway!
