We stopped long enough in St. Louis to see the arch. I honestly thought it was about a third of its actual size. It's HUGE!!
Onward north to South Dakota to see the Badlands and Mt. Rushmore.
The way this monument was built is just incredible. Those men were some brave souls!
The main event--YELLOWSTONE!
Yellowstone Lake is about 20 miles long and 430 feet at its deepest point. I was just awed at the amount of it that was covered in ice, and the view across it to the mountains is so beautiful.
Next stop, the Grand Tetons.
Here are just a few of the fun critters we saw along the way.
This buffalo must be VERY important. It's the only one we saw with a tracking collar. Hard to believe that cute little guy grows up into its companion. LOL
I think this little guy is a marmot.
A little lady Bighorn sheep.
These are just a few of the digital pics I took. I still have NINE rolls of 35mm film to develop! LOL
I've missed all you guys and will be making my way around to visiting you all ASAP.
