Geysers and Gushes of Wonder

Recently, I was blessed to visit Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. It has been on my “bucket list” for quite some time. So, I did it.

I love nature, I love hiking. But in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, the grandeur is amazing and full of wonder every place you turn.My cousin and her husband met me for part of the trip, and then for the other part of the trip I was on my own. We had planned it that way. My cousin Mary is quite knowledgeable about how to be safe in the woods. and knows so much about animals and plants. So often during the trip, I thought, can it get any better than this?

One of my favorite parts of the trip (and there are many) is going back to Yellowstone by myself. I loved the feeling of adventure, not knowing what the day will bring. I drove in and stopped at a pull off stop. One man I talked to said he had seen a bear about a mile down the road, in the stream looking for fish. I thought okay, let’s be careful. He left, another family came in who spoke another language who were very happy to be in the park. I asked if they wanted their picture taken. They were happy that I asked, and scurried into the picture. They took my picture, and off they went in their van. I was alone at the spot, and wonder of wonders, there was a trumpeter swan swimming, gliding in the lake. I watched, and smiled to myself. The ballet “Swan Lake” came to mind. There she was. I basked in her beauty, and left her to be alone to enjoy the day as much as I was.

  2. Great picture, Carol. So glad you enjoyed the parks. All the National Parks are quite wonderful, but Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Glacier are my favorites, perhaps because I know them best.
