home again!

We made it home safely, and had a wonderful time!  My first vacation with TWO teenagers (how did I get old enough to have 2 teens??) wasn't without it's quirks though.  Namely...teenagers can get crabby suddenly and then just as quickly be having a ball. Sheesh.

And I bring photos!  Probably too many, so forgive me.  But there was so much to see in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons!  This is a mostly photo post... Enjoy!

"Morman Row"



 We were stopped a few times by bison!



My favorite part was touring the geyser basins.  I could have walked around taking pictures of them the entire time!


G-man, by one of his favorite geyser pools "Sapphire Pool".  I used a little retro coloring on parts of the photo.  Although...there is no coloring effect on the pool itself!  It really is that color!




 
Old Faithful!


The kids enjoyed animal watching the most.  And I'll admit, it was pretty exciting to see our first bear!


I thought of Dawn when we saw this big fella!!

Grizzly!

And we have some bison in Oklahoma, but I still love them.
My pretty Lu, hiking at Jenny Lake.

Hidden Falls at Jenny Lake in the Tetons


Isn't that a lovely photo?  I was standing at the top of a "butte", taking this picture when unbeknownst to me...my flight was taking off at the Jackson airport.  All flights out of Denver were cancelled on what was to be our last day in Wyoming (due to bad weather), so we were *rescheduled* on a much earlier flight.  Too bad nobody told us!!  We were stranded for a day & night in a downtown Jackson hotel, and then spent most of the next day (more than 12 hours!) in an airport or on a plane.  I have never been so glad to be home in my life!

Home again now though...and just about recuperated enough to get back to normal.  Now I have lots of blog catching up to do!
