Our families like to visit Yellowstone. The first time was on our return from Salt Lake City to Michigan. Remember that incident of Tomato soup at the Temple? Well, this was the next day. June 1965.We really enjoyed Old Faithful then, when she would really blow! The hot pots are otherworldly.I still remember peering through the windows of our car as this old bear came up to the windows. We didn’t stay at the Lodge but we got a picture.The geology at this place is amazing. A photographer could stay for the whole summer and not get everything here at the wonderful spot of Earth.In 1972 Grandpa Heinz with his wife Donna and youngest daughter Debbie went to see the sights and Old Faithful. He took the photo’s.In 1994 we camped out at Yellowstone. They passed out flyers as you drove in saying,
“Beware! Bison will gore you!”
That one in the background snuffled and wheezed right next to me in that tent all night. I believe that little cowgirl still has some of it’s fur from the brush. After we left Yellowstone we put on our Sunday best
– in the tent-
and drove a bit to visit with family.In June of 2006 we returned once more to Old Faithful.So much to see and plenty of room to get away from others and enjoy the peace.In 2007 That young girl traded in her buffalo fur to carry around her own daughter.Daddy got in a picture of the angel with the hot pots in the background.The buffalo were spotted along the way.
I remember in my minds eye going on a similar looking trail, and having a red eyed one looking right at us, as if he was about to gore us.
