WOW!  I can't even describe in words how truly amazing Yellowstone National Park is.  Heavenly Father has created such beautiful places for us to visit and Yellowstone is one of the grandest.  There was a sense of spirituality and wonder as we marveled at the great beauty that surrounded us.  We were blessed to witness the unique landscape, the majestic geysers, the incredible wildlife, etc.  (Really.  Pictures and words do not do this park justice.)
The Painted Pots
It was incredible to see the geysers and hot pools...
We didn't test the water, but we could feel the steam,
and smell the sulfur.
For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies.
Lord of all to Thee we raise
This our joyful hymn of praise!
For the beauty of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon, and stars of light,
Lord of all to Thee we raise
This our joyful hymn of praise!
I love these guys!  (I just miss my eldest daughter....)
This cute man is my eternal companion!
US - forever!
Wildlife closeup....
We saw a lot of American buffalo in their native habitat.
They weren't scared of us at all....
But we stood about 10 feet back.
This elk was only 3 feet away.
His antlers were huge!
These rare birds were my favorite wildlife!
I love Kotten Kandy and Fig Newton!


  1. I love the song For the Beauty of the Earth! You got some beautiful pictures of the earth too :) Glad it was such a lovely time!

  2. I sang with you through the pictures! Really beautiful...
    And the wildlife - 'Up close' doesn't say it even. The two in shades of blue are rare birds indeed...
    Oh, and I like the two S's behind the tree roots. That's my favorite picture of all! Mom/Mil
