The kids and I drove about an hour or so today to see our first geyser. Here's Old Faithful of California as she erupts. She was on an every 20 minute or so schedule today.
We also saw some Jacob Sheep, Fainting Goats, and Cockatoos. Interesting note about the goats.... they don't really faint, but when they get startled, their muscles lock up, which often causes them to fall over (faint). At one time they were used to protect sheep. If wolves or coyotes attacked, the sheep could run away and the goats would fall over, providing an easy meal for the predators and saving the sheep.
I think the kids were more interested in the llamas they saw there, though. Emily had to snap some pictures and then of course we all had to sing "The Llama Song."
