Yellowstone Day 1 (2012)

I'm currently on vacation (so you won't see your normal amount of book reviews) in Montana. Today and yesterday we drove down to Yellowstone.  I love our National Parks.  Yellowstone is amazing, otherworldly and totally worth visiting.  This is my second trip and there's still massive sections of the park I haven't seen.  Here are a few pictures from our first day, spent between Norris and Old Faithful.

I do weird gymnastical things for no real reason at Norris.
Norris Geyser Basin. 
This was my little friend. I said "Come here" and he did.
It made me feel like a Disney Princess. 
This Elk was down the hill from the roadway.
Quite close. Didn't care that we were watching. 
Pretty geothermal area at Biscuit Basin.
We hiked to Mystic Falls.  There were no vampires.
But nevertheless it is a lovely hike. 
Yellowstone Inn is fantastic. I want to stay there.
This is what happens when you tell me to wait for
Old Faithful for an hour.  I get bored. 
The basin behind Old Faithful.

It looks like you're having an amazing time, girl. I love that the little chipmunk came up to you like that. And, is that elk really huge or do I just think that because I've never seen an elk before?

That's a pretty impressive hand stand. :)

That elk is really large. It's the first elk bull I've seen but its much larger than all the females I've seen before.

I think doing handstands in famous places might be my new random photo thing. I did one at Glacier in front of Avalanche Lake as well.

Vacation was great!! Don't know how I'm going to share about it without this starting to look like a photo blog.
