A Little Something About Yellowstone

I’m off this week having a lovely vacation in Yellowstone National Park. It’s my first time here and it’s really beautiful. I don’t, however, have the same overwhelming feeling I had when I arrived in Alaska back in the early 1990s. Back then, I was from the desert and I had never imagined anything so beautiful and extreme and cold in my life. It changed me forever and how I viewed nature and the world. I was hoping Yellowstone would elicit that same feeling.

But I’m old now and I’m not as bright eyed and bushy tailed. It’s beautiful here, but I’m not overwhelmed. I think that has something to do with youth and it being a first. I hope that my two boys are having the same feeling seeing Yellowstone as I had when I saw Denali Park – amazement and awe.

That said, it’s not that I’m not having a great time! I’m here with family and friends and we’ve seen some pretty spectacular sights.

Here are some of the picture highlights so far.

    New reader! First of all, love your blog!

    I visited Yellowstone when I was 16, now 30, and it was awesome! My family was going through some tough times, mainly me being a teenager and rebellious, so the trip was bitter sweet. We did see some really cool things. The main thing I wanted to see was a bear. I didn't see anything the entire time we were camped there, but then finally on our way out of the park we saw one! A big brown bear across the river! Everyone on the road had pulled over to take pictures. It was amazing! That was the highlight of the trip…for me. I loved it there, although I've never been to Alaska.

    Enjoy your trip!

    That explains how I react to many things lately. It must be the age. Certain things are just not as overwhelming like other certain things. Every turn changes us.

    BTW – thanks for taking the moment in commenting in my blog. I really appreciate it and I hope to see you again soon.
