Day trip to Yellowstone

What????

Day trip to Yellowstone? Yellowstone National Park? Are you kidding? Aren't you in Moab Utah?

Yes, yes we are in Moab and besides, Yellowstone is only 619 miles away.

Welcome to the little conversations that go on in my head. We did go to Yellowstone National park though. Our daughter Kendra has been here in Moab  so that she could get used to her camper. She has taken a job in Yellowstone and starts on Monday so we had to help her get there. We don't start our Yellowstone job till June 1st.

We got up very early Thursday morning and drove like wild banshees to get there. It's a good thing that the scenery was nice. After being there really got me excited to get up there. There is so much new stuff to see and do. We are looking forward to that new adventure.

Then we got up very early Friday morning to drive back to Moab. We stopped for a couple of pictures, so here they are.


Elk are everywhere

We left at 6am and we were up in the clouds

A steam vent

A Buffalo herd
That was the most exciting thing this week.

  4. It was super quick. But then we had practice with our Tuscon trip. That one was a little bit farther.
