Next Stop: Old Faithful

One of the several faithful geysers of our great country is in Calistoga, California.  It was my first geyser experience!  Very fun to watch, and frankly an amazing spectacle.  It truly engaged my sense of wonder around geology.  Can you believe that there is that much pressure just constantly ebbing and flowing beneath our feet?  Makes you feel a little insignificant–in a good way.  Plus they had fainting goats and llamas.  Not sure what the connection is.

Refreshment

A major perk of the visit was that the gift shop carried Vernors–my favorite ginger soda!!  Particularly exciting was finding it in the bottle.  A first.
