Back From Vacation

I have been quiet for awhile because I recently got back from my annual vacation to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, which was amazing and inspiring. Now I just need to get back to working on new primitive dolls again. In the meantime, I have a few pictures of highlights from my trip to share. The photos were taken by my husband and I with our new Canon 30D and new super zoom & wide angle lenses.

I already can’t wait to go back again next year.

  1. You have some GREAT pictures from your vacation. Kinda makes me
    “homesick” as I lived in Cody for 9 years and used to go up to Yellowstone just for the day. We never saw a bear the whole time we lived there tho and incredibly you saw both a grizzly and the black bears!

  2. Thank you! How did you like living in Cody? I have been wanting to visit there for a couple years now because it seems like such a cool town – I should finally make it there next year. I am surprised that you never saw bears – we saw two grizzlies and 5 black bears this year! I wasn’t expecting that, last year we only saw one of each.

  3. Your hubby took some Amazing pictures. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. I have never been there 🙁 Thanks for sharing.

    Blessings, ~Tonya

  4. Just popped in to look at your pears. Saw your pics and just had to leave a comment. Nice to see you vacation in our part of the states! I live in Jackson, WY. Your pictures are great and I must say you are lucky to have seen the bears! We get some that loiter in spots and you hear about them and go find them otherwise you need to be up at the crack of dawn to see them. Glad you had fun! Jayne

  5. Hi Jayne,
    Thanks for stopping by! Jackson, WY would be one of my dream towns to live in. I have been there twice and absolutely love it. I am going to be back in the area again in September and hope to have great luck bear-spotting again (getting up at the crack of dawn is part of the plan). 🙂
