Yellowstone Beauty

Oh dear.  I seem to have stepped in something.  I think the cat must have.......  No, that's not it.  


I was doing some unpacking, putting stuff away, flipping laundry, and then I saw something in the corner of my eye.  My brain kept asking what is that, what is that?   I dug a little deeper.

Ah, my blog.  Cool.  

I'm back.  At least for the moment.

Hubby and I took a trip up to Yellowstone.  We left Oreo, the cat that looks like a cookie and has a big dog butt, in capable hands, and I think he may have picked up a few skills while we were gone.  Hum...what is that in your mouth, Oreo?


He's been glued to my lap, increasing his skills at hindering my typing and still a bit fussy with us for leaving him for so long.

Our trip was wonderful.  I have so many photos I want to share but I'm only picking a few favorites in order to keep my sanity.....and yours.

Lower Falls - So soothing.  
Evil Twin wanted a barrel....for me.

 Whoa!  Stand back, Reffie! 

The Grand Prismatic Spring.  Evil Twin was expecting aliens.

Canary Spring - NOT for bathing.  I told Evil Twin to put away her towel!

An elk munching, oblivious to the beauty of the sunset.

 Storm over Lake Yellowstone.  Wowie!

That's all for now.  I'll be back soon with a post about wolves.  Let's not tell the cat that it won't be about him, 'K?

My, oh my! Those are some breathtaking pics! AND...I was looking for aliens too!

I knew I liked that Evil Twin.

She rocks.

Not to worry BFF.

So do YOU! *smile*

Welcome Back!
If your trip was wonderful, you must have seen some Bears. So, how many were there?
If you say none, I'll claim you weren't being very observant.
And don't get me started on cats.
But it is great to have you back in the blogsphere!

@00dozo - Thanks. Yogi was elusive.

@Quirky - Thanks. It was tough taking photos with an enthusiastic Evil Twin.

@Rob-bear - Thanks. B-B-B-B-ears? We saw a total of one. The rest were better at hiding.

Wow, those pictures are just gorgeous. Fantastic.

I love Yellowstone, when we went I was so excited that I got close to a chipmunk that I used all my film before old faithful fully erupted.. Yes I said film, it's been that long.

Mike said...

If I were able to go to Yellowstone I wouldn't be blogging either.


Whenever I travel, I get so pooped that I just want to buy a house and remain there. So Yellowstone is definitely out.

Golly, your stunning photos make me think I need to get out and visit a few of our national parks. ;)

Wendy said...

I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go! (You are evil for not inviting all of us to go with you.)

ReformingGeek said...

@Ziva - Thanks. The subject makes it easy.

@Madge - Film? Yeah, you need to go back.

@otin - Amen.

@Beau's Mom - Ah, you don't want to live near a volcano?

@Mike - Um, yeah, you do. Get busy.

@Wendy - Sorry, but our car was full!

Gorgeous! Hubby and I went there about 15 years ago and loved it.
