After a really long drive last Sunday, my parents, Connor and I got a camping spot inside Yellowstone National Park by Monday morning. Connor and I were both extremely excited to begin our explorations — Connor had never been to Yellowstone before, and it has been quite a few years since I had last gone there. It was interesting to see how much I had forgotten or how I saw the world differently as a child.

We saw many different landscapes and wildlife while we were there. Thick forests and mountains blended into rivers and open plains, each suitable for different animals. We saw buffaloes with their calves, a grizzly bear, pronghorns, a coyote, and elk with their babies. One of the buffalo calves had supposedly been born just four hours before we had seen it, so small! Summer is the best time to see the babies.

We looked at many of the park’s natural landscape as well, such as the Grand Prismatic, Mammoth Hot Springs, and Old Faithful, just to name a few of the amazing geological features. Yellowstone is full of volcanic activity, creating the hot springs and geysers which you see all over.

Camping with my parents was a blast. It was nice to have experienced travelers to guide the way, especially when it is your family, and it was great to spend some quality time with them before Connor and I continued our travels through Wyoming to Colorado.

    Wow! Your pictures turned out beautiful! Especially those precious baby elk and the curious one that really wanted to see inside that clinic. I’m so thankful we got to have that time with you and Connor. You guys are so much fun to travel with. Remember the joy is in the adventure getting to where you are going, which really, is every day of our life. Thanks for this amazing adventure with us! Love, Mom
