Wyoming (Yellowstone)

Remember that happiness is a way of travel – not a destination.” – Roy M. Goodman

Hey friends!

So, I found these pictures whilst cleaning up my computer and organizing files (yes, I’m an organized nerd). I have to say, Yellowstone is one of my favorite places that I’ve ever been to! So, I definitely felt these were worth sharing. I don’t remember much of the trip, names of places, things like that. I took this trip when I was much younger. When I was younger, I never cared to pay attention to the names of things, I simply enjoyed the view. And I don’t think that’s always a bad way to look at things! I think it’s often best to just sit back and let the view guide you. To kind of “go where the wind blows.” Due to that outlook, this post will mostly just be pictures. So, just sit back and enjoy the view!

On our way out to Yellowstone, we briefly stopped at Devil’s Tower to admire it from a distance. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After that, it was Yellowstone!

Yellowstone is a gorgeous area with incredibly unique natural wonders as well as tons of wildlife! Bison, especially. In fact, you have to be careful driving through the park because Bison are often crossing the road. And, you don’t want to hit one of those beautiful beasts. They fight back.

The hot springs all over the park are stunning! They give off an odd smell due to the large amount of sulfur in each, but it’s a very small price to pay for walking the boardwalks through these colorful ponds.

In this case, I took a picture of the sign, so I can tell you that this is Kepler Falls! Along with all the beautiful hot springs, there are tons of rushing waterfalls throughout the park.

This particular waterfall I remember because my sister was obsessed with it and wouldn’t stop talking about it. This is Fairy Falls. It is a beautiful place and requires a bit of a walk to get to. The walk is not very strenuous, and it’s worth heading out this way for a picnic and a quick dip of the feet in the cool waters below the falls.

Another incredible sight within the park is Old Faithful. There are many beautiful geysers in the park that are worth checking out, and unfortunately I didn’t find my pictures of these on the computer. If I find them at a later date, I will be sure to share them with you. But, all of these sights are ten times more incredible when you see them in person! If you ever have a chance, Yellowstone is one of the greatest places in the United States that I have found for beautiful natural wonders and a huge array of adventures to embark on!

Thanks for reading!

Sincerely,

Kirsten
