Yellowstone National Park

August 1st we headed off to Yellowstone!  If you like mountains, waterfalls, forests, bison, long hikes, and sore muscles...go to Yellowstone:)  Although don't go hiking by yourself or off the trail and make sure there's at least 3 people in your group so you don't get mauled by a bear.

The Bad Lands in the distance

watching the Fellowship

Mt. Rushmore

you can see the watchtower in the distance

the best thing on a drive to the mountains is seeing them in the distance

a beacon form Lord of the Rings

Bear Tooth Pass

The Lonely Mountain

Mountain water is f.r.e.e.z.i.n.g.


Pronghorn deer

A warg was clawing at this tree;)

Thranduil would've loved it here:)

Dragon's Mouth

This guy's shirt said snap on so I decided to 'snap' a picture of it:)

My dad called this the 'igloo geyser'

Old Faithful

it reminded me of a tornado:)

We watched Old Faithful go off one last time the morning we left!

Our parents bought us pop-tarts for breakfast for the ride home!!!

The Grand Tetons
(probably my favorite part on the whole trip)
