Yellowstone

We just got back from a week vacation in Yellowstone. We have both been wanting to go there for quite some time. We have vague memories of the park from family vacations when we were children, so it was nice to go see the same places as adults.

The park was beautiful. The trees are growing back nicely after the forest fires in the early 90s.

We took tons of pictures. You can see them here: http://albums.phanfare.com/3836152/2243349

We got to see a black bear and its cub really close. They were walking right along the side of the road. On Tuesday we were at Old Faithful and it was sprinkling lightly, so we decided it was safe to go along the hiking path to all of the smaller geysers in the area. All of the sudden we were caught in a very bad thunderstorm and even got hit by hail! We had to make a run for it back to the lodge, but got completely soaked.

Overall, I was very impressed with the park. There are a lot of things there I don't remember ever seeing.
