Gary, the Wylie Permanent Camp at Old Faithful was on Wylie Hill. Today, if one is standing on the tar path looking at Grotto Geyser, Wylie Hill is directly behind you. Here's a Haynes post card of it taken in 1915, taken from near Giant Geyser, maybe partway from Giant to Oblong, and closer to today's tarpath.
