we visited yellowstone a few weeks ago. it was spur-of-the-moment and short, but wonderful as long as i don't think about the freezing/busted air mattress nights. our dear friends the crandalls let me borrow a few lenses and i am so pumped to buy one now. you can easily tell which pictures are out of the fancy lenses.
this would be a very apt christmas card picture. this is so us. that japanese tourist really captured our dynamic.
james is maybe the most outdoors-loving person i know. he also used to believe he was native american. (and part tiger, but that's another post.) and he had never been to yellowstone. the bison were his favorite. you can probably tell.
i used to be a city girl, but more and more i'm drawn to nature. the bucolic life for me! the real world is just rough and sad sometimes. a lot of the time. like a bison would never get on facebook and have their facts messed up and call you a hateful person. you know? i appreciate that about them.
the last time i visited yellowstone, i was maybe ten. it was the summer my parents and neil and i hiked 100 miles in 5 states. (is that right mom?) i probably complained through 99 of those miles. it's such a great memory now. more and more i realize how nostalgia drives me.
