Yellowstone

To celebrate Blake's birthday, we took a little trip to West Yellowstone and Yellowstone Park. We took Brian's pickup and loaded the 4 wheeler in it. We stayed at the Worldmark resort.


We stopped in Island Park on our way and fed the fish at Big Springs.

We rode the 4 wheeler around for awhile. We found the school bus that we saw last winter when it was buried in snow.



We saw an elk ranch with HUGE elk behind the fences.




We found the boat dock that looked totally different last winter.




Blake is loading up the 4wheeler after we had ridden around for a couple of hours. It was perfect weather, just a little breezy, but really nice temperature.

On Thursday we rented a GPS that told us all about Yellowstone Park. It was like having your own personal tour guide. We learned alot about the park, and it's history. We drove the north loop and saw many things we had not seen before.


We saw quite a few Bison and Elk, this big guy was just sauntering down the road.


Friday morning we took off again through the park, we went south and drove through Jackson. It was a nice relaxing trip to see things almost in our back yard.



We saw Old Faithful erupt. We couldn't have timed it better if we tried. We walked up and sat down on the benches, waited a whole 3 minutes before it started spouting off! Can you see the rainbow in the steam?




When we left Old Faithful, there was a huge crow sitting on the seat of the 4wheeler. It didn't move until we starting backing out!




We saw the back side of the Tetons. They are so majestic and huge! This was taken right out of the pickup window.

Of course I don't mind. You are welcome at my blog anytime. I love how it makes the world a little smaller and brings people together.

It looks like your trip to Yellowstone was great. We just love it up there, it's a favorite destination for my family. The kids especially love Big Springs in Island Park.

We drove by you and Jared going up to the Matsuura's house on the Saturday morn. you took the pics. I commented to Manuel that I didn't know you played tennis, we thought that was so cool! Your photography is even cooler.
