As we’ve ben making our way west, I’ve been slowing shedding some of the very east coast things and I’m becoming more “west”. I didn’t realize it right away, but I am now wearing workout clothes as daytime clothes, I’ve stopped wearing make-up except for the occasional dinner and I’m definitely more calm.
We thought Yellowstone was pretty cool, but it was kind of a tourist trap. The park is enormous so driving is essential and a ton of the cool features are drive-able so it’s super hard to squeeze in the sights and hike in two days. We did 5 mile hikes each day, but we could never escape all of the people.
It’s also a little crazy to be on top of a volcano overdue for it’s eruption. I mean the ground is literally steaming!
Lower Yellowstone Falls into the Grand Canyon (of Yellowstone). Pretty awesome.
Yeah, it’s totally normal for the ground to steam…
The infamous Morning Glory Pool. It’s sadly been discolored due to visitors throwing things into it.
Again, steaming ground due to the volcano underneath us….ain’t no thing
You can’t go to Yellowstone without seeing Old Faithful so here it is y’all.
We hiked to another waterfall, but this was my personal highlight.
This photo is captioned for my campers – especially Theresa, Peter and Lena. BEAR SPRAY – it’s real, it works and it’s 50 bucks! I personally think the bear bell is still better.
I am obsessed with the sunsets here. And the sky with the mountains in the background. Really, it’s stunning (note to readers – this will not be the last sky picture seen here).
This is the view as you’re leaving through the south entrance. Those are the Grand Tetons. What else can you possibly say about that?
We’re now behind those mountains above in the Grand Tetons. We are already obsessed with this place and have decided we much prefer glaciers to volcanos.
