Ok so I am finally posting about Yellowstone. And, yes, this is Emily. Hopefully Josh will post at some point.
So how is one supposed to describe Yellowstone?
Majestic? Daunting? Awesome? Overwhelming? Powerful? Serene? Massive? Unparalleled?……………….YEP! All the above!
We made the decision to get up early and get into the park before the crowds as we heard that traffic in the park would be a “bear” later in the day. We are so glad we did. It gave us the chance to see some wild life and it made for a peaceful way to wake up.
First thing we saw when we were a mile or two into the park was this guy. He was just taking a stroll down the street. He was literally feet from our car. :)
Next we saw some…… of………… these guys……
Anna and Mommy went and sat on the big comfy leather couches in the Old Faithful Lodge. While we were there we went into the gift shop and found something that Josh and I now call affectionately “magic rocks”. They are magnetic rocks and Anna thinks they are the coolest thing ever.She literally SAT and played with them for over an hour, not uttering a peep. :) Sounds magical to me!
After seeing a few more sites, we ended our day in Yellowstone with Bekah getting sworn in as a “Junior Ranger”. Very cool! She even got a snazzy badge, that will have a prominent place in her baby book! :)
