This one is going to be tough. Due to a heavier-than-usual anticipated work schedule this year, I don’t know if I will have enough time off to make a trek across the country to Yellowstone National Park. But I’m putting it on the list, anyway.
Last fall, during my book tour for Pete the Popcorn, I had the unbelievable experience of camping in Yellowstone National Park. Now, due to the grueling tour schedule, we arrived at the campsite at about 4:00 PM on a Saturday, camped overnight, woke up at 5:00 AM and explored all day, seeing Old Faithful and tons of wildlife before departing at 3:00 PM for Billings, Montana. During the drive to Billings, we were able to see a lot of Yellowstone from the road— including a travel along the Beartooth Highway. Yikes! I get chills just thinking about it, really.
Anyway, in my 24-hour Yellowstone jaunt, I was completely inspired. Inspired by nature. Inspired by beauty. Inspired that government actually had the brains to set this piece of wonder aside. Inspired that the place was overflowing with families, eager to show their kids nature in its fullest.
Why do I want to go back? Pictures tell this story best…
These were taken on our way to Yellowstone through Wyoming and also in the park during our first day:
And some shots from our second day in the park:
Here are two videos from our adventure in Yellowstone:
Stay tuned later this year as I attempt to make it back to Yellowstone National Park!
