Are you hot, sweaty and tired of summer?
Well, sit back and enjoy
the breathtaking views
and up close and personal
Beautiful Yellowstone National Park
Grand Teton National Park!
Can you tell that we loved the water? Waterfalls around every bend in the road!
Clear, cold , running water. Roaring rivers, meandering streams, and sparkling lakes.
I need a job writing travel brochures!
The second most photographed item in the Yellowstone National Park is...
My husband's biggest regret of the entire trip is
that he couldn't
get the zoom feature on my little camera to work...
when he discovered this friend,
munching berries a mere 30 feet away from him..
(Note: There is a reason that signs everywhere state: Do NOT get closer than 100 feet of wildlife!)
Everyone else had left the area,
had grown tired of waiting
for this guy to amble out of the brush.
They had wisely moved on.
Not easily discouraged,
my hubby waited.
His patience was finally rewarded
when this guy's head popped up
from the berry bush,
and he looked straight at the photographer~
My man did not run.
He stood there and fiddled with the zoom button.
They say you should not run,
so he didn't!
I know it's a true story,
because my husband
took about 30 minutes
to calm down!
Once his hands stopped shaking,
we moved on.
Hubs took one million up close shots of
Safe, unmoving, rocks.
either that, or they are both taking a pee break!
Do you see them?
Let's have some more of that cool, peaceful water - shall we?
Ahhhhhhhhh! We don't see much of this in Kansas.
In fact, we don't see any of this!
I chose to sit right here
and rest while my man
climbed on up to the top.
Thanking the Lord for allowing me to be here, for my family,
praying for each of them, one by one....
I sweet place I will not soon forget!
It was so much fun to see all of the wildflowers EVERYWHERE
Unfortunately, some of the prettiest ones were right on the edge of the road
on a hairpin turn with no shoulder,
where you wouldn't dare stop your truck!
and the luscious plantings EVERYWHERE
something about the dry, cool mountain air .... the flowers love it!
What a wonderful 4 days....
we didn't see it all,
I know we will come back for more someday.
We must move on...
the road is calling once again.
It's Rally Week, after all!
