the majority of day four & all of day five of our trip was spent at yellowstone national park. hands down one of the most breathtaking places in our country. [based on my opinion].
we entered the park through the northeast entrance. and our campsite was near the south entrance. little did we know, it was 86 miles away. going a maximum of 35MPH, that’s when buffalo weren’t in the middle of the road.
but I’ll just shhhhh and let the pictures do the talking.
[warning: so many buffalo shots.
sorry I’m not sorry].
me: why is traffic going so slow?
[J]: a buffalo is leading the way.
he was totally giving us the evil eye.
absolutely insane. I loved waiting on the buffalo. hence the 100+ pictures.
mammoth hot springs.
norris geyser basin.
we got to old faithful a mere 3 minutes before she began to erupt. and overheard the couple in front of us say, “we waited an entire hour for this”. great timing on our part.
[right next to our campsite].
it rained both of our nights spent at yellowstone. which always makes it more interesting in a tent.
and we hiked to the bottom. to play in the river.
[we loved our merrell barefoot trail gloves. the best purchase we made for our trip].
the grand canyon of yellowstone.
thee most beautiful waterfall.
west thumb geyser basin.
they were puttin’ off a lot of heat!
and then on the way out of yellowstone [south entrance], you immediately enter the grand teton national park ..which is equally as breathtaking.
next up: our road trip to & our time spent in salt lake city. [including a town we’re dying to revisit].
