Old Faithful in Winter PFF #38
This is a First Day Cover I created in January of 2009. The stamp was released with little fanfare, and since the lodge was closed for the Winter, there was no ceremony for this stamp. I made the almost two hundred mile trip to West Yellowstone, which is as close as I could get to Old Faithful without riding a snowcoach and still get the cancel I wanted on the First Day. Was there snow on the ground? I could not see out of the parking lot when I finally found the Post Office. I could see the flag flying on the flag staff out in front, which was a big help in locating the building as it was.
