Yellowstone, Part One

Good morning! We’re up at the crack of dawn and after breakfast and a quick walk with the boys we head out. Today is YELLOWSTONE, and I am very excited. I never thought I would get the chance to see this park and now it’s happening!
WARNING! This post is picture heavy. I will let the photos speak for themselves.
Hwy 189 N takes you through Lewis Canyon, the south entrance into the park along the Lewis River.

The park is GORGEOUS as are most high mountain areas, but the sheer size and scope of it all is breathtaking! Add in the geo thermal features and well …

I really wanted to see the Norris Geyser, but the parking area was full and with traffic there just wasn’t a place to wait for someone to leave.

This was a full day and still we didn’t see it all. I made the decision not to drive the Mammoth loop as there are two construction sections each with possible 30 minute delays and the reality of adding up to two additional hours to the trip and according to the clerk I asked, very rough road, then finding a campsite, I passed. Tomorrow will be the last leg of today’s trip as we head east out of the park toward Cody, Wyoming, and a surprise shot of a lifetime that took several of us by surprise.
Hugs, Shawna
CURRENT READ: Nada! There’s too much to see and by the end of the day I am too tired to read! Ha!
