Jen and I have been talking about taking Zach to Yellowstone for a few months.. We figured we would hit the park at the end of the season to avoid the large crowds and hopefully see some cool animals along the way! :-)
Our first stop on the way to Yellowstone was at Bear World near Rexburg
Zach loved this bear statue.. he kept saying "ROAR"
This goat kept following Dustin around trying to eat his shoelaces. Funny!
Jen and Zach found a nice deer to pet in the park.. yes a deer!
Dustin and Zach had a blast on the carnival rides
Yes there were a lot of bears there too of course. Over 40 in fact!
When we arrived in Yellowstone it was like a different world.. It was snowing!
The truck was freezing cold.. but that didn't phase us, we were ready to drive through Yellowstone!
Our first animal encounter in the park.. only 10m into the trip!
Too bad Zach was already out.. too many warm blankets and cuddly stuff I guess ;-)
Jen and I saw lots of cool things while Zach slept..
We even saw a Coyote!
Dustin and Zach next to some cool steaming pools
Time for some mid trip refreshment.. window ice!!! hah hah
Zach and Jen next to Old Faithful
Zach playing in the snow
Ice crystals on some weeds.. with hot pools behind.
Our first view of the Tetons.. Pretty amazing.. but lots of clouds covering the peaks
Another cool view of the Tetons
Zach and Jen were having fun chasing Daddy around
We looked everywhere for a Moose and finally saw one in Jackson Hole where we stopped for lunch! And we were able to pet this one too! :-)
The full set of pictures we took on our trip through Yellowstone are now online!
