Yellowstone

This year for the Thompson reunion we went to Yellowstone.  Doug and Sara rented a huge cabin and we had a great time.  The first night we got there and had dinner and caught up with each other.  The next day was Yellowstone.  This picture is of the first bison we saw.  We were all so excited we got out of the car and all walked over to look.  Little did we know we were going to be seeing lots of those, and they soon lost their appeal.  Wish we would have seen a bear!
I love this picture of Scott looking in the distance
Our family at the Firehole Falls

There was a herd of bison in the middle of the road so we had to stop and wait for them to move.  They were not intimidated by us at all and it took awhile.
Some of the first geysers we saw--the water was a turquoise blue
Scott and SoSo
They call this one the dragon cave--I thought it was the coolest geyser we saw
This hike was long and very steep, and I was afraid it wouldn't be worth the effort, but it was an amazing scene!  It looks fake.
Dinner with the cousins
The adult table--everyone watching TV
More cousins!

Very nice pictures, thank you, the picture of the valley with the river running through it is beautiful, and the one of Firehole Falls is nice with the family in front of it. I like the Dragon Cave, it really does look cool, so is the water hot and are there any hot springs there? I do like the bisson but they do look very intimadating, I think if I came up on them crossing the road I'd want to back up to give them room.
