Hey, does anyone think it’s weird that I’ve posted three entries about Yellowstone and zero pictures of Old Faithful? I mean, maybe we didn’t even go to Yellowstone. Maybe I just walked around the yard and took some pictures of my family and am just MESSING with you all. Right?
So here. Proof that we went and stood in front of some things at Yellowstone National Park & the Grand Tetons.
Standing in front of the other-wordly Mammoth Falls:
Standing in front of an amazing waterfall at Artist’s Point:
Standing in front of the majestic Grand Tetons:
Standing in front of the stunning Fountain Paint Pot:
We didn’t always stand in front of the park’s magnificent features.
Sometimes we sat.
Okay, okay, sometimes we stood back and gawked and took pictures without any of us in them at all. Here are a few of my faves, with minimal captions.
Artist Paint Pot (or maybe some other spring; I can’t remember anymore), sans selfie:
Mammoth park was happy to see us:
Fun fact: The original Star Trek used Mammoth Park as the setting for Spock’s home planet of Vulcan!
The Grand Prismatic, which Kevin kept calling the Grand Spasmatic, in honor of our youngest son:
And…it’s a boy!
If you look closely enough at this pic, you’ll see a mother moose and her baby at the side of the river. For once, I’m not being sarcastic—they’re really there!
I’m kind of a flora geek and took more pictures of flowers than I did of my own kids on this trip. I’ll try to post just one of my flora pix.
Well, maybe just one more.
Oops, my hand must have slipped, because here’s another.
On our way to the Tetons. The only thing missing from this picture is a random kid standing on the side of the road saying, “Zoom zoom.”
Hidden Falls on Jenny Lake hike:
A kid who got in the way of some flower I was taking a picture of:
And because we are getting toward the end of the post and I see you are nervous I’m going to forget to put in that picture of Old Faithful…
What? It’s true!
WHAT’S COOKIN’ 2NITE:
IDK! Maybe curry & pad thai? Hot dogs on the fire pit? Maybe we’ll go out? Maybe we’ll order in?
