Firehole Sunrise

The three-mile loop road known as Firehole Lake Drive is amazing in the autumn. At sunrise we see the warmth of the sun battling the cold air, low clouds, massive amounts of thermal steam, and fog. It can take hours for the sun to finally break through. DuringĀ that process, we meander through an eerie, cloaked landscape that envelops us. Welcome to a Firehole sunrise.
