Road Trip to Yellowstone!

We’re home this week from a short but idyllic camping vacation to Yellowstone with a couple of our kids and the grands.  It was beyond precious to take the kidlets to spots that were our family’s favorites years ago–to see them swimming in Firehole Canyon, to hang out by the sparkling waters of  Nez Perce Creek having ‘boat’ races, to pitch our tents in the very same wooded site their daddy once trotted about in…

Now follows a whole slew of photos–the best of a goodle more–as an attempt to share our experience…

Yay for road trips!!! And ‘My Country Tis of Thee’!

I am a true blue American at heart living in exile with the man that I love… As I said to the border agent–He’s worth it! (But it’s always wonderful to be back!)

Yellowstone is as awesome as ever…

The Grand Canyon of Yellow-stone….

The sweeping Hayden Valley through which we cycled…

 

The booming, sloshing, pulsing Dragon’s Mouth…

Lots of rubber-necking delays heading out of the park most nights on account of wildlife along the way…

Boat Races on the Nez Perce Creek… and a disappointed 3-year-old who learned this day that rocks don’t float.

Swimming in the geyser-fed-but-not-quite-warm waters of the Firehole Canyon…

Baby squirrel trying to get back to mama has to risk passing these little humans…

Fun doesn’t get much better than playing in and around streams…

 

One of the perks of camping with the kids–Bacon, eggs and pancakes done to perfection over the fire. Thanks Micah!

One of many, many road-side wonders, the “Young and Hopeful” Geyser.  

 

The crowning event of our trip is yet to come, more next time…
