Fall in the mountains

There is nothing quite like a hilly hike on a chilly fall day.  We visited Yellowstone National Park this fall for the first time in over a decade.  Yellowstone was the first National Park in the U.S. and I am not surprised by the 1872 act that established this spectacular 20 million acre park “for the benefit and enjoyment of the people.”  If you have not visited, you must.  Be prepared for crowds or plan your visit on the off-season.

This elk was just hanging out at the north entrance of the park.

Our National Parks are treasures.  I loved the hiking, fly fishing, sightseeing and animal viewing.  Yellowstone has so much to see and do, but stepping out of the car to experience nature’s paradise was my favorite part of our trip.

Without guide BJ, I would not have pulled in this guy!
