Wyoming, Idaho and Montana   4 comments

The last day of our trip and boy did we have many miles to cover. 

First we had to say good bye to Jackson Hole! One of our favorite places to eat in Jackson Hole was the Bunnery.  They proudly served Starbucks coffee and that is about as close to a Starbucks as you get in Jackson Hole! 

I did not get that many pictures on the way back to the airport since I needed to do some of the driving.  But I still did manage to get a few shots!

We were pleasantly surprised with how beautiful Idaho was.  We drove through a portion of it and the rolling green fertile fields were amazing!

So, if you are planning a vacation, I would highly recommend Montana and Wyoming.  There are plenty of recreational activities for everyone to enjoy.

And all sorts of animals to see up close and personal not to mention all the beautiful landscapes.  Truly a vacation to remember!

Montana, Wyoming & Idaho – Day 1   2 comments

 And the adventures begin…

Flying from Seattle into Bozeman, Montana

We had about 70 miles to drive to our first destination. The views along the way caused us to try to come up with adjectives that could appropriately express the wonder and beauty of it all other than amazing!  Even more appropriate was driving through Pray, Montana.  And that we did – offered prayers of praise and thanksgiving for this creation that we were allowed to gaze in awe at.

We arrived at our first stop in Gardiner, Montana just outside the North Entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The proprietor of the inn we stayed at offered free roping lessons – oh yeah!  I am proud to say that I am quite handy with a rope!

Now that we were completely adjusted to the country life, off we went to see what wild animals we could find in Yellowstone.  We started at the North Entrance.  The words on the monument as you enter say “For the benefit and enjoyment of the people”.  Boy did we enjoy seeing the sites and of course the animals!

The park is HUGE – 63 miles long and 54 miles wide! So much beauty to behold so little time!

 

Then there is the Unusual Beauty of Yellowstone – Norris Geyser Basin.  Steaming, boiling earth – crazy amazing!

It was a long sensory overloaded day and we headed back to the inn as the sun was setting.  Our pillows were calling and a new day awaited us.  My camera batteries were quite happy – they needed a much deserved rest as well!!

I will leave you with one of my favorite pictures of the day…
