While he was in sessions, I drove to Yellowstone National Park. It was breathtakingly beautiful and it felt like a crime to enjoy it by myself! It was a delightful drive, though and I really enjoyed the alone time. What a treat to see a black wolf (rare even for those who live locally, I guess), bison, elk, longhorn sheep, and so much more. I had never been west before and it quickly became a priority for vacation in the next few years with the kids.
What a welcome trip. We have had such a challenging and confusing year and feel like it will never let up (we welcome your prayers). We were so thankful for the time away in a beautiful area of the country!
|This ended up being a full rainbow with a partial double - gorgeous!|
|The view from where we were staying!|
|The Lodge - a boutique inn known for their fly fishing.|
|I loved the texture of these.|
|Hot springs - so remarkable and smelled like sulphur (ick!).|
|Bison crossed the road in front of me.|
|Beautiful waterfall - close to where the wolf was spotted. It was too far away for me to successfully photograph, but it was awesome to see!|
|A herd of bison roaming free in the park.|
|Another waterfall - about a 1/2 mile hike off the road - totally worth it.|
