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
very fun TToT!ReplyDelete
always enjoy your 'eye' when it comes to taking pictures.
I barely avoided all night of Julie Andrews on the second photo (I did, however, laugh out loud)
It's funny how music has a way of just jumping into conversations.Delete
Thanks for reminding me to get my camera out!
Gorgeous photos! Wyoming doesn't have many red or bright orange trees in the mountains.ReplyDelete
Thank you. Do you think the trees will change color later on, or is this just not a good year for color?Delete
Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos.ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed them.Delete
Of course. What blind person wouldn't love this all photo post, with you to describe each shot like you do?ReplyDelete
I love how you captured all the beautiful, bright autumn colours and the nature and wild animals you came across too. I also love the name of that waterfall.
Plus, once again you end your thankful post with your partner's place in your life, even in pictures. Sweet stuff again.
I'm glad you enjoy the captions; I think of you as I am writing them and hope that my descriptions are adequate.Delete
This post was pure pleasure, I am thankful you took all these lovely photos to share with us! I smiled at your doe caption too, funny how all of us are familiar with that tune. The walking path made me wish I was there to enjoy it, and of course Bridal Veil Falls is magnificent and so aptly named!ReplyDelete
I didn't know that chipmunks could hang upside down like that! I always wonder why Our Creator didn't endow cats with the wisdom to use their claws for hanging on so they could back down the trees they climb with such ease! I've only ever seen one that could figure it out!
Your ending photo of the two of you in such beautiful surroundings was picture perfect, so much love and joy in those smiles! It left me smiling too, I am happy that you are enjoying this new chapter of your lives together! Have a blessed week ahead! XO
There is beauty here, that's for sure. I'm trying to soak it all in before the seasons change and the landscape changes to white snow.Delete
Thanks for treating us to this gorgeous splendor of beauty...ReplyDelete
That's what I love most of the US, all that natural beauty, whereever you go, what state you are. I'm a bit 'home-sick', missing all the lovely places we visited this holiday and probably never see again. I have this after every trip, being sad and missing seeing all those wonderful sights.
So, thanks for treating me on some more beautiful sights.
(and am I the only one who sang the rest of the Sound of Music song after your "Doe, a deer, a female deer.... Ray, a drop of golden sun!?")
Northern California has had so many wildfires this past week; the Santa Rosa area was hit particularly hard. I'm glad you visited California when you did.Delete
