Lunch at the Old Faithful Inn Dining Room

Today I decided to visit Yellowstone National Park. As I tend to enter via West Yellowstone, I always find myself contemplating and debating where to go for breakfast, for lunch and for dinner, as I have had the privilege of dining at many places in the area.
And as much as I love quite a few restaurants in West Yellowstone, I find myself really loving and appreciating the Old Faithful Inn dining room located in the Old Faithful Inn. Located on 3200 Old Faithful Inn Road, this is a place I highly recommend. As a vegetarian, I enjoy this restaurant because it offers an extensive selection of vegetarian food. It also features an array of favorites with a vegetarian angle, so you can order anything and they will provide you with great alternatives and substitutes. The ambience is definitely interesting as it consists of a rustic yet historic log cabin.
As most of the time they only accept reservations (mainly for dinner) to eat here, sometimes it is great to frequent this world-renowned geyser inspired eatery during the lunch hours, as they tend to not be so busy.
I decided to enjoy a nice lunch here today, as I was visiting the park. Today, I ordered the roasted red pepper smoked gouda soup with a classic vegetable panini with mozzarella cheese on it. The sandwich was a little dry, but had a rustic flavor I really appreciated. The soup was absolutely delicious. I can see that being a real, tried and true classic to keep on the menu.

To drink I enjoyed Chai tea, as they make a good one here. The tea comes directly from Big Timber, Montana and everything is so fresh and flavorful. I wouldn't say it was as good as masala chai, but they offer organic vanilla almond milk which is what I love with my chai tea when I order it.
For dessert, I decided to order the Summer Berry Stack. This dessert consists of a citrus cake layered with key lime and creamy white chocolate cream cheese. It also consists of an array of berries and is garnished with raspberry syrup. I really like the dessert here; however, it does remind me of something that was or is frozen and then thawed out. Nevertheless, it was still relatively decent.
I have tried almost every restaurant in Yellowstone and so far, this is a favorite. They also offer a lunch buffet, but I haven't tried that. Lunch is from 11:30 am until 2:30 pm everyday. For more information about the Old Faithful Dining Room, just click here now.

National Dessert Day: Yellowstone Caldera

Today is "National Dessert Day" so for today, I decided to share with you the Yellowstone Caldera dessert. You can enjoy this decadent chocolate truffle torte with a warm molten middle at the Old Faithful Inn Dining Room. The next time you visit Yellowstone National Park, you may want to check out the Old Faithful Inn Dining Room at the Old Faithful Lodge. Order the Yellowstone Caldera for dessert, as it's excellent.

Welcome to Yellowstone National Park 2012

Yellowstone is such a fascinating place. If you haven't had the opportunity to visit, I truly recommend visiting today. You will never see a place like this ever in your lifetime.

I spent the entire day yesterday at Yellowstone

I truly apologize for not keeping you as updated as I should be. Life does get busy, however; in the end, I should always include you in my life. So, as I am off for a few days from work, I decided to take a trip to Yellowstone National Park yesterday. 

I entered the park via West Yellowstone, where they held their "crazy day" event which was manifested with great deals on souvenirs, as well as, food and other fun. I also managed to run into friends and acquaintances when walking through the areas. Despite being relatively scorching hot, I had a great time. 

I didn't see everything (which is truly impossible for just a one-day-trip), but managed to see the things that I wanted to see for quite a while including the Steamboat Geyser, the largest active geyser in the world and at Yellowstone. I am getting a new laptop, so I will post pictures soon. In the mean time, I hope you are doing great and I promise that I will do my best to blog more.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and day.

A look at Gibbon Falls at Yellowstone National Park

Gibbon Falls is an incredible waterfall on the Gibbon river. With an over 80 foot drop, the Gibbon Falls is just another fascinating site and reason to visit at Yellowstone National Park. The Falls Overlook on the Gibbon Falls trail is 400 feet as the Lower Outlook is 1,000 feet.

A look at the Kepler Cascades at Yellowstone National Park

When visiting Yellowstone this weekend, I had the opportunity to visit the Kepler Cascades. I was so intrigued by them, as they are so incredibly fascinating. I actually walked a little down from the cliff to get the second shot. Probably not the smartest thing I have done, but the picture was worth and I am still alive. If you ever visit Yellowstone National Park, I truly recommend checking out the Kepler Cascades.
