Summer in Yellowstone National Park, aka Wait… I’m living on top of a volcano?

Summer in Yellowstone National Park, aka Wait… I’m living on top of a volcano?

We finally arrived at our destination in Yellowstone National Park on 5/30/18. This was to be our home for the next 3½ months. We lined up our jobs here in the park almost a year earlier and since leaving Florida we have yet to look back. Yellowstone National Park was the first National Park in the U.S. and is also considered to be the first National Park in the world. A large portion of the park is made up of…

Lower Falls – Yellowstone National Park

Lower Falls – Yellowstone National Park

Lower Falls – Yellowstone National Park. I have been waiting for weeks to post these pictures. The view here was so surreal it was like being in a living painting. I took these photos near Canyon Village in Yellowstone National Park at the Lower Falls. The haze you see is from the water as it cascades over the falls and lands with incredible force at the bottom of the canyon. One can only wonder what someone with true photographic talent…

We are booking a one night stay in hotel in West Yellowstone every couple weeks on our days off to get our internet work done. I can’t believe it has been over a week since I was able to successfully write and post an update. Seems like our…

On The Road To Nomad – Our final days on the road before Yellowstone National Park – Joe

On The Road To Nomad – Our final days on the road before Yellowstone National Park – Joe

Our final two days of travel before we get to our summer destination in Yellowstone National Park were relatively uneventful and short. Our plan wasn’t to stay at KOA’s very often (if ever) on our way to Yellowstone but we did find these to be more convenient and ended up staying at them on several occasions our last two days included. On day 11 we stayed in Buffalo, Wyoming and after our days of sightseeing in the Black Hills National. AND the…
