The hike of a lifetime: "Jesus is Lord"

Yellowstone : Mount Washburn : Day 2

Thursday, July 16, 2015 Unspeakable Beauty I cannot adequately relay the beauty of Mount Washburn. This is a feeble attempt. This Mount Washburn (video), and photographs do not do justice to God’s majesty. Early Thursday we arose, layered up and headed for Mount Washburn. It was a 3 mile one-way hike up to an elevation of […]

Grand Canyon of Yellowstone National Park: Day 2

Thursday, July 16, 2015     5:36 p.m. Mountain Time This was one of the more crowded areas. Elbow to Elbow. It was scenic. It was breathtaking. It was so intense that I did not want to get too close to the edge. The water roared. The colors were striking. I am so happy for […]

Camping at Yellowstone

July 15-18th, 2015 We made camp at one of Yellowstone’s many campgrounds. Unfortunately, at Bridge Bay Campground, where we were and during the time we were there, there was no hot water. The bathrooms were clean and there was an outdoor basin for cleaning dishes but it was cold water all the time. The temperature […]


Yellowstone: Lone Star Trail : Day 3

July 17, 2015, 5:17 p.m., Mountain Time Steps away from the Kepler Cascades overlook is the trail to Lone Star Geyser. My tent-mate Mary Beth and I were up for an easy, flat hike and we went for it. The Lone Star Trail is as peaceful as it is scenic. It is totally wooded, quiet […]


Solitude at Bonneville Salt Flats

I really,  really like quiet spots. Sometimes, when travelling, you incur places that are seemingly empty or void of human contact. Such a place is Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. Of course, the “tourist-y” section near the interstate is filled with onlookers. But for endless miles and miles and miles and miles all you see […]


Yellowstone: Bison: Day 2

Thursday, July 16, 2015    2:39 p.m. Mountain Time One of the trademarks of Yellowstone is the in-your-face presence of animals. We saw bison standing in the road and holding up traffic (video).  Typically, if you see a crowd of people on the side of the road pointing, there is most likely some type of […]


Yellowstone: Tower Fall: Day 2

July 16, 2015    3:41 p.m., Mountain Time Tower Fall is in the Tower-Roosevelt Junction of Yellowstone (video). It happened that I had a mile case of stupidity on the ascent to tower fall. There is a grand overlook. And below the overlook, there is something that looked like a beach shore at Yellowstone River. […]
