I have been enjoying a much needed break from school. Just working and relaxing! Except I have also been sick. I had the stomach flu one day last week that kept me home from work, and then this weekend I have been dealing with an inner ear infection. This has left me with fluid in my ear and having my equalibrium being off which means I have been extremely dizzy. It has not been fun. Bill finally did and ear candle on both my ears and relieved most of the gunk in my ears (I'll spare you the details).
Now for our trip to Yellowstone. We spent 3 days there so I will still have to break this into more segments. This post in and of itself will be fairly long with all the pictures I have chosen to include, so bear with me. I just hope you enjoy the beauty and fun that I captured.
On the way to Yellowstone we made a couple photo-op detours. My MIL is a photographer and so much time was spent with the windows down, her head hanging out the window, and plenty of stop and go's.
We drove by fly fishermen fishing the Gallatin River
Hebgen Lake (near West Yellowstone)
Just goofing off! Can you see my reflection?
I liked this picture of DH
This lake was created by an earthquake in 1959. That mountain in the background slid. The trees you see are actually tops of trees that used to be part of a forest. The lake is over 120 feet deep. Go here for more interesting information about this lake.
As we entered Yellowstone Park the first thing we saw were these beauty's.....
Love the geese in the background
This coyote was hunting his next meal.
This is my MIL and this is how you would find her the whole weekend!

Isn't he a beauty?
Eat your heart out Gordon!
I want her camera!
This is my favorite. The pictures don't do it justice.
The water is bluer than you could ever imagine.
LOL! I just had to take this one.
We called them the "Nair Boys"...
"Who wears short-shorts"?
I know... I am bad! But hey... I just had to!
My dear sweet husband
This was just the first day and part of the second day of our trip. I took over 600 photos. I am only posting a few of them, but deciding on which ones to post is proving to be very difficult. If you have never been to Yellowstone National Park, I would recommend you take a vacation and do it. I've been there several times in my life and can't ever get enough of it. The scenery is breathtaking. The wildlife is awesome.
I will post another segment soon.
