This is my absolute favorite place that we have visited in our country. There is so much to do there ---and each time we go, we see many new and different things ---along with some of the things we want to see over and over....
In 2012, we put an emphasis on waterfalls and geysers... SO---this year, we did visit a couple of waterfalls which we didn't see in 2012, but we only saw ONE geyser this year. In 2012, we visited the Tetons in September... At that time, the boat across Jenny Lake wasn't running (which was a disappointment). SO---this year, we decided to fight the summer crowds (which we hate) and go there in summer/August.
Right now, we are talking about going back in 2018. AND---since we did the Jenny Lake boat ride this year, we will either visit the area in late Spring or early Fall. I love September because of the Fall Colors ---but Spring might be nice also...
I could talk and talk and talk about this trip (and will have many more posts I'm sure) ---but decided just to pick out 15 pictures to share today. Hope you enjoy this first batch of pictures ---and be sure to click on them for enlargements.
Above is a picture of one of our favorite places in Yellowstone, the Canyons area. We will continue to visit that area over and over ---each time we go. When I can see mountains, canyons and waterfalls all together, I am definitely in my 'happy place'. The picture above is of LOWER FALLS of Yellowstone ---as taken from one of our favorite overlooks, Artists Point.
I'll close with my favorite picture I took on this entire trip (I think). Someone on Facebook told me that it may be the best one I have ever shown.. I don't think it was the photographer, but in this case, it was being at the right place, at the right time. This was taken at Schwabacher's Landing in the Tetons showing the reflections of the mountains and the puffy clouds...
I could go on and on showing you many of the other places we visited while in Wyoming, but I'll stop and let you enjoy these today!!!! Don't forget to click on the photos for enlargements ---especially that last one.
Hope you have a fantastic September. There are two more gorgeous photos from our trip on my Photo Blog ---so don't miss seeing them. Click HERE to visit that blog post.
