My favorite place in the USA – Yellowstone National Park (part 1)

In the early 1990’s Tim and I spent two months driving a small Previa van around the USA. We found that this country has some of the most natural beauty and diversity of any of the countries we have explored. From “sea to shining sea” we made a huge loop. Starting in Los Angeles, across the Southern states to Florida. We then headed north up the coast all the way to Maine in time to witness the spectacular fall foliage and include a visit to Niagara Falls.

Cutting across Eastern Canada, we later dropped back down to the US to pass through Chicago and stopped to visit family in central Illinois. By that time we were running short on time and anxious to get home to finally get our brand new business started and off the ground. That meant we by-passed the northern and northwestern states.

Years later, as a surprise for me, Tim planned a 10 day trip to Yellowstone National Park to help fill in some of the ground we had missed. In September 2006 we flew into Cody, Wyoming and rented a car. Ever since that time there, I have considered Yellowstone my favorite place in the USA, and possibly on this planet for pure natural beauty.

As an avid amateur photographer I was in heaven.

The scenery – larger than life animals, erupting geysers, multi-colored pools, geographic wonders, waterfalls, lakes, meadows, and fall colors all combined to perfection.  Here is just a sample of what we saw:

Gratitude Moment:  Today I am grateful for my vision and that I can see and enjoy all the beauty Mother Earth shares with us.
