    .. If you are a Fall Fly Fisher in Yellowstone National Park - AND - enjoy elbows more than submarines; then, the Firehole River is your cup of mouthwash.
    For The Adventurous Fishers
    .. There are some delightful cabins at Old Faithful that may appeal to you if you are on a budget. They lack some amenities but are full of charm and character.
    .. Today, these cabins between the 'Lodge at Old Faithful' and the Firehole River, are called "Budget Cabins." They have a cold water sink and no bathroom. They are on the site of the old tent camps in Yellowstone National Park.
    .. These cabins have the typical post and pillar construction and some have been upgraded with concrete steps. Rough-sawn dimensional lumber was used and is a step up from the logs used in many early cabins of the era. The sills usually rest on concrete piers today - originally stones and boulders formed the foundations. When built in the 1920's these cabins represented a major improvement over the tents.
    .. Communal showers and toilets are almost within walking distance of each cabin and are frequently very clean.
    .. Today they represent a bargain for lodging in the park. Right now they are only $89.00 a night. The fireplug and guard posts just got a new paint job.
    .. The images are big enough for wallpaper if you like.
