Those of you who know me know that I kinda like to take pictures....of everything and anything.
So, this should not be a surprise when I say "Sorry for the photo overload" of our trip to Yellowstone.
These pictures aren't in any certain order, but they are of things that we thought was neat or funny or just wanted to remember.
....like this sign about staying on the trail because of hot spots. Haha! Baby Root beer and i would chuckle every time we came across this.
Yellowstone is just an amazing park. I was amazed at how every place we went seemed to have different kinds of vegetation and wildlife.
I loved how my kids were into everything too and had their cameras out to take photos of the things they loved.
**no I did not photoshop a smilie face on that mud bubble....that was naturally occurring and my kids loved spotting it. =) **
The mineral deposits and colors that appear in some of these hot pools is amazing. The color of this blue one below was so inviting to me..... but no worries, I remembered that warning sign and made sure to stay out of it lol!
Oh and we have gone from leaving the fire at our house to coming to the fires here at Yellowstone. They closed off one of the roads due to it, but we are camped pretty far away from it so I'm not to worried.
But the smoke in the air has sure led to some fiery sunsets.
It's been a long, but fun day.
The kids were such good sports, but you could tell as the day wore on that they were getting worn out and the fighting between them was almost to the point of driving me crazy.
Once we got back to our camp site and got them tucked into their beds they all fell asleep almost instantly.
I am grateful for the beauty all around us.
