I took this photo out of the car window while moving so it's really crooked. In the center, the tree that looks dead has an eagles nest in it. This particular area of the park is where eagles can be seen at most any time. This year we haven't seen an eagle but glad to spot the nest and know they are still with us!
Yellowstone Park the very first of our National parks, was greener than ever this year. If you've never been through the park it's for sure something to put on your bucket list. Really beautiful, peaceful drive and you are almost guaranteed to spot deer, bear, eagle's, moose....and even a fly fisherman :-)
I did take a couple of photo's of the hot springs that you can see from the road and even stop and take a walk to see several of them. Steam can be seen everywhere...
They Government was performing a lot of road work in the park so we did experience a few delays. One of them for approximately 30 minutes, but hey, if your gonna be stuck in traffic what a great place to be stuck!
I'm always amazed at the flowers that grow along the roadside. Beautiful purple, yellow and even orange this year. I try so hard to grow them and keep them healthy at home and these just do their thing naturally. The picture doesn't do the forest and flowers justice. They really are brightly colored and everywhere.
We experienced several construction zones as mentioned, so at one point it was like, it's only right they make the blog :-)
We arrived at the Gotham household in Thornton Colorado around 9 P.M.. So great to see our friends again, we stayed up till close to midnight laughing about old times when we were neighbors in California. It's going to be a great visit with Tami and Scott, almost guaranteed that every moment will be blog worthy :-)
Missing the kids this morning.....so glad I have Skype that has allowed me to to see my daughter in law Katie twice now. It really does help when you're a little homesick for the people you love and be able to actually see them. I highly recommend you all start Skyping :-)
Closing with some random shots from our travels.......
