Yellowstone 2023 – Initial Thought

I was just looking through pictures from our family trip to Yellowstone National Park (and Grand Teton National Park, Jackson, Wyoming, and, briefly, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort) this past June, 2023, to select some to add to a folder to rotate through for my computer desktop pictures, and am astonished by the grandeur that carries through. What incredible destinations! The pictures help, but I miss being there – and the moments with family in those transcendent settings.

Clearwater Beach 2022

Love these two. It was fun to get away for a few days to play in the sand and see some sights – the aquarium, zoo, and some good meals. They were good travelers, too – helpful with their own bags, reaching to push the elevator button or open the hotel door – interested and talkative – polite.

More adventures to come!
