Wow! People are not joking when they talk about how amazing Yellowstone National Park is! In Day One, we saw geysers, hotsprings, mudpots, bison (I literally lost count!), mule deer, a peregrine falcon, an eagle, and a whole bunch of giddy smiles!
A day that starts with a snowball fight is a good day!
helping Mr. Bang use the binoculars to see a herd of bison
We were only about 30 yards from this guy on the boardwalk!
I love how you can see the colors of the hot spring reflected in the steam.
We saw a peregrine falcon dive down and snatch a fish.
Then we saw a bald eagle get scared away by another bird.
This drawing seems to have been made for my children!
As we were driving along, we were talking about how so many trees by the side of the road have animal markings, meaning that animals are frequently in the road. As we were having that conversation, here comes a herd of bison in the road!
Then there was a herd across the river from us.
We saw many calves!
One more large herd greeted us before leaving the park
