|One of Yellowstone's Geyser's ... possibly "The Thumb". Taken 1915|
Saturday, July 3, 1915
Had about 200 dudes last night. 150 were a Texas party being taken through by Rev. Young of Texas. They were such a jolly bunch, gave yells, songs, etc. There were so many pretty Southern girls and our boys surely made use of the short time they were here. The Texas crowd stayed to lunch so we have had to work all day. The second crowd from Beloit, WI came tonight. They had their trip before arriving here. Yesterday, Ethel, Vera, and Phill went by boat to the "Thumb" to help serve lunch to the Texas party.

Sifting through the plethora of photos, I struggle with what photos go with her journal entries. I have always loved the last photo - unusual to capture "in-the-moment" smiles like that back then. I assume my grandmother might have known a few of the Beloit WI "gang" that came to Yellowstone as it was close to Roscoe IL - where she spent much of her early years.
