We were fortunate enough to spend three days in Yellowstone National Park. We weren’t quite sure what to expect of this place. We have heard stories from previous visitors about how amazing it is. Our first few hours in park were unimpressive, but as we pressed on, we started seeing the magic is this place.
The water is so incredibly clear. It felt too sacred to even step in.
Grand Prismatic Spring – This place was beautiful. This is the place the Sara was most wanting to see, but it fell short of expectations due to the fact that you can’t see the colors in the same way as you can from an aerial view.
We all worked together to help Max become a junior ranger and got to learn so much about the park in the process.
We tried to book camping in the park about 2 months out from taking the trip. Well, that didn’t work out. So, we stayed at the KOA outside of West Yellowstone, MT. We all enjoyed this camp spot and the mini-golf. And, on the last night in town, we got to have s’mores.
Poor Maddie came down with pink eye within the first few days of our trip. Her eyes starting getting worse and we had to take her to the doctor only to find out that she was allergic to the medication eye drops another doctor had prescribed. Her eyes continued to bother her for most of the trip. She was a trooper though.
We couldn’t get over the fact that we were standing in the caldera of an active volcano. There are so many places in the park that were magical. Even the kids agreed that they would want to return here one day.
Next up, Grand Teton National Park and Star Valley Wyoming.
