A Trip Through Yellowstone

This past week my husband's brother and family were here for a visit, so we took a short jaunt up to Yellowstone National Park. It's a real treat filled with beautiful scenery and wildlife galore.....



A view of the Teton Mountains just outside of Jackson Holy, Wyoming. We can see the backside of these from our backyard in Idaho.




A big ol' buffalo! One of many you can see wandering throughout the park. And I finally got to see a bear! We've lived here for 6 years and I finally got to see a bear in the wild--2 grizzlys, but I didn't get to snap a shot of them, because it was the end of the day and my camera batteries were caput. Guess we'll just have to go back!



How pretty is this! Lots of creaks, streams, lakes and rushing rivers.......


While walking on one of the many woodsy trails we happened upon this little buck. There were two in fact and they didn't seem to care how close we got--and yes that is a no-no! We also saw several female elk grazing and a coyote and none of the animals seemed to care they were being watched--just keep your distance though.




My hunky, handsome husband (in the hat), his brother ( and yes his name is Micheal Jackson) and Mike's son JD.

We all had a great visit, a wonderful day, a big picnic lunch, beautiful weather--we never got over 62 degrees all day--and in July! And we took lots of photos!

I've never been to Yellowstone National Park, but have always wanted to go. So it was especially nice to have an opportunity to view your photographs. Thanks!

Thank-you for sharing those beautiful pictures! It is nice being able to get a glimpse of other places especially since we won't be having a vacation this year.
