Summer Vacation in Yellowstone!

Right after finishing up at school on June 30th, we headed out to Calgary for my hubby’s cousin’s wedding.  Although the weather was not fantastic (we left 30+ degree heat and landed in some 20 degree or so coolness), we had a fabulous time.  Congratulations to Brian and Erin!

After the wedding, my husband, brother-in-law, uncle-in-law, and I all headed down to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming (and Montana… and Idaho…).   It was spectacularly amazing – so much wildlife, beautiful mountains, stinky hot springs, astounding geysers, cool hiking trails, and lots and lots of driving.  I could not believe the size of the park, it was a 2.5 hour drive from the North entrance to our Lodge!  Here are some of the pictures we took while in the park:

Hopefully tomorrow I will have a card to show you.  I have been colouring some Kraftin Kimmie images with my copics, and want to get some cards made for a challenge posted this week. 

Tah for now!
