Looking Back on Our 2015 Yellowstone Adventure

Looking Back on our 2015 Yellowstone Adventure

The trail curved, cutting through tall brush and berry bushes.  Several hikers rounded the bend and froze. Twenty of us stood poised with cameras and binoculars.  I’m sure they didn’t expect a welcoming committee! We waved them through, keeping our eyes on the trail. And then he appeared. A black bear cub stepped onto the path in search of his Mama and twin who crossed moments before.  He paced, unsure of which path to take. Then he paused and looked back, as if to reassure us that he found his way before disappearing into the brush.

Looking back on our 2015 Yellowstone adventure felt a bit like leaving home.  Fond memories mixed with a readiness for new explorations.  And so, our second season in this wilderness wonderland came to a close.  We stayed true to our vow to keep the experience fresh by “doing things differently”.  We discovered new places such as Lone Star Geyser and gained new insights, like the fact that “park potties” are dark and scary before sunrise!  We trekked new trails and sipped morning coffee at the river’s edge.  Moose greeted us in the Tetons and lured us to return frequently.  Best of all, we shared special times with visiting family and friends and gained new friendships.

Someone once asked if I was collecting anything to remind me of our travels. “Yes”, I smiled, “Greg’s photographs!”  We hope you enjoy this latest collection of Yellowstone photos.

Black bears climb trees to munch berries along Moose-Wilson Road in the Tetons. It’s amazing the branches don’t give way!
