EXPLORE // Yellowstone Day 1
Hello everyone! I've been meaning to share my trip to Yellowstone, which was about two weeks ago. My friend Ruth and I made the four hour drive from our home town to check out the sites and ran into many buffalo, deer, and even spotted a few bears on our last day!
Of course, I had to lug around my camera to capture the iconic moments, so let's jump right into it, shall we?
It was a bit bizarre seeing how populated and commercialized Old Faithful had become. Crowds of people lined the edges, and behind us were lodges, gas stations, diners, and a huge visiting center that had a walk through science section on the history behind Old Faithful.
I remember when I talked to my parents about our upcoming trip and how they reminisced on how peaceful and isolated the area used to be compared to how it is now. It's definitely one of those moments where I wish I could step back in time and see it for what it used to be.
Afterwards, we hit up Lower Falls and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone before we called it a day. Both were spectacular sights, but man...the Grand Canyon was breath taking. That's where the first photo was taken at, and that's what I'm surveying. The last one is from the overlook we were at, and the camera simply can't capture everything. There's an essence of beauty that's impossible to relate until you experience it yourself.
I hope you enjoyed this mini travel post and it inspires you to explore more in your area! Hop in your car and start driving - you might be surprised by what's around.
I'll be sharing Day 2 soon, hopefully! Until then, tell me what you think and if you'd want to see more posts like this. What are some of your favorite local places to explore?
