Yellowstone 2011

My poor neglected blog! It’s been such a busy month that I’ve hardly had time to write in it. I meant to update it along the way when I was in Yellowstone last week, but, alas, I either got home too late or was too exhausted when I got there to do so. I hope I can make up for it by writing about it now.

This year was memorable in that my entire family was able to come for the first time in five years. Yippee!! I have some feature pictures, but my main goal this year was to have people in as many pictures as possible. So here’s a few highlights of my trip.

Of course we saw plenty of geysers: Grand, Riverside, Castle and Old Faithful.



Plenty of hot pools




And of course any given Yellowstone trip involves plenty of waiting . . .



This trip was special because it was all about family, and as I mentioned above, I wanted to get my family in as many pictures as possible.



This year we saw quite a few waterfalls, including Kepler Cascades (below left), Lower Falls (although you can’t see it because it’s just the brink), Crystal Falls, Upper Falls, Gibbon Falls




I have a million more pictures I’d like to include, but this post is already really long. I’m definitely going to do a separate post on my visit to Grand Teton National Park, but I might also do one just on my family because they’re so great! Stay tuned!

I can’t resist ending with a little irony. Enjoy!
