One Day in Yellowstone
After 5 days of decompressing in a cozy, remote cabin on a cattle ranch in Montana, exploring Bozeman, and hitting up the local spa and hot springs, we had just one day left to explore Yellowstone National Park. I hadn’t been there since I was a teenager (that would have rather been watching an N’SYNC concert on HBO), and my husband, Mark, had never been.
We poured over a book that was left in our cabin about things to see in Yellowstone and pointed out the coolest pictures and decided what we most wanted to see. We figured, when in Yellowstone, you pretty much have to visit the ever so iconic Old Faithful, and besides that, I wanted to see colorful basins, while Mark hoped to see some wildlife. As it turned out, we got to see everything we wanted and more.
Sipping on our hot morning coffee, we headed out in our little rental car to see what we could see. Just as soon as we pulled up to the park entrance, bought our pass and moved forward, the sight that greeted us was worth the 2 planes and hours we drove to get there! Trickling water in a creek right off the road, deer, trees and hill views were around every bend in the road, and the more we drove, the more the landscapes changed before our eyes. From open fields that made your mind feel free, to mysterious deep green forest, to hot steaming psychedelic basins. It was amazing what you could see in a single day, in a single drive.
