Old Faithful Inn, Yellowstone National Park

Old Faithful Inn, Yellowstone National Park

From the historic Washington landmarks in the Garden Court, we moved on to the West Gallery, which housed an enormous Douglas Fir Christmas tree decorated with national park ornaments and a model of the Old Faithful Inn and geyser, along with the front of a locomotive for kids to play on.

Old Faithful Inn is located in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, with a view of the Old Faithful Geyser. The inn has a multi-story log lobby, flanked by long frame wings containing guest rooms. With its log and limb lobby and massive (500-ton, 85-foot) stone fireplace, the inn is an example of the "Golden Age" of rustic resort architecture, a style which is also known as National Park Service Rustic. It is unique in that it is one of the few log hotels still standing in the United States. It was the first of the great park lodges of the American west. (From Wikipedia)
