Established in 1872 by President Ulysses S. Grant, Yellowstone National Park is one of my favorite roadtrip stops in recent memory. We spent only a day there, and I'd love to go back and spend much longer. It is a large National Park, with tons to see and do. Because it's basically located in a volcanic crater, geothermal features abound: bubbling mud pots and geysers and mineral-rich water in otherwordly colors. Everywhere I turned, I saw something that amazed me. And because we visited in October, we missed the hordes of summer tourists.
Thanks to my husband for the pictures!
Tomorrow is the last day of the A to Z Challenge! We're almost there!
We have SO many wonderful memories of our trips to Yellowstone (and the nearby Tetons). It's such an incredible place (especially off-season)!ReplyDelete
Oh, yes, the Tetons are spectacular!Delete
Stunning photos, Jenny! Yellowstone is the park I recommend most often to family and friends wanting to tour the west. I've always wondered what it would be like to stay at one of the lodges in the wintertime.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great plan for a writer's retreat, Pat! :-)Delete
Yellowstone is lovely (I was so excited when I was there because I saw bear and moose), but I loved Yosemite more.ReplyDelete
I have heard many wonderful things about Yosemite, and it's definitely on my list!Delete
That was quite awesome. A very nice visual respite before going to my overnight job of unloading and placing groceries. Thanks!ReplyDelete
I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures. Thanks for stopping by and for keeping the food supply chain going!Delete
