God's Country

We had a most remarkable time exploring Yellowstone National Park as a family. This was a summer trip two years in the planning, and the anticipation was well justified. It was amazing to see such variety in landscapes and wildlife and to learn about the geothermal activity of the geysers, hot springs, pools, mud pots, and fumaroles. Truly God is a master artist with His handiwork sprawled across the "canvas" of Wyoming. Our photographs could never do the area justice (even so, we still snapped nearly 500 pictures). Here is a minuscule sampling of our experience:

The Geyser Basins

The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone

Hayden & Lamar Valleys

West Thumb

Fishing Bridge
