Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
Priceless treasures - every one of them!ReplyDelete
Wonderful photos. Putting faces to the men who actually fought in the wars makes learning history so much more emotional and overwhelming for me. The things they saw and did...it really was a sacrifice.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous photos... they make me feel so grateful for all of those precious men and women who serve. I love this tribute so very much Kristi!!ReplyDelete
Love those old pictures. Without brave men and women like your family our country - the Netherlands - would not have been the same and I might have been talking German now...ReplyDelete
Even though it's been a long time ago, it's still very much alive here and we're forever gratefull.
I am thankful that my Dad, my grandpa and my uncles all made it back safely. Not everyone did. Love your pictures.ReplyDelete
Your grandfather was a baby in WWII, wasn't he? My uncle was 19 when he trained to fly airplanes in WWII. And the one of your great grandpa in his WWI uniform is amazing!ReplyDelete
