Yellowstone and stuff

Oct 4, 2007 by Jared Smith

We had a fun trip through Yellowstone last week. It was well below freezing at night, but we still camped out – though I’m not quite sure why. We drove from Cache Valley to Montpelier to Star Valley, through Jackson, and then to Old Faithful. Old Faithful sure gets less and less impressive each time I see it. I don’t know if it’s getting smaller or I’m getting bigger (no fat Jared jokes), but I’ve seen broken sprinklers that are more impressive. I guess we need a good earthquake to churn up the old Yellowstone caldera a bit. After O.F., we camped at Madison, then did the Upper Loop (Mammoth Hot Springs, Tower, Grand Canyon), then headed for Rigby for the rest of the weekend.

Here’s A BUNCH of photos.

Is that a broken sprinkler? Nope, just Old Faithful.

You lookin’ at me?!?

I don’t think this guy got the memo about winter coming

This photo doesn’t do this guy justice. He was very big.

Yes, I was close to this Grizzly Bear, but if things would have gone bad, I could have easily outrun about 100 Japanese tourists who were next to me.

And here’s a photo of all of us not camping.

And finally, a funny video of Abbie and Bryan

  2. I love all of the photos! It sounds like you had a great time on your vacation/trip. We need to get to Yellowstone one day to see all of that cool stuff. And your kids are growing up so fast! They are just adorable

  3. Your pictures are great! I’m so glad you guys got to stop in for the weekend. We always love it when family comes to town. And your video of Abbie and Bryan is fun. I love little baby laughs.
