I have blogged frequently about the importance of finding your awe, intentionally regaining that sense of wonder you often felt as a child. Awe is difficult to define, but research shows that the awestruck state of being is good for you, and promotes wellness. Artist Point is one of those views in Yellowstone National Park that has inspired our ancestors for centuries.
When my sister mentioned to me that she wanted to see Yellowstone, I jumped at the chance for an awe-inspiring sister trip to this amazing national park. We grew up running around in the deciduous woods of the mid west with our brothers and nature just seems to feed our spirits. We flew in and met in Bozeman, Montana to beat the summer crowds in the park and get a chance to see the baby animals.
It was cool, wet, and rainy when we arrived, but we were prepared and yes I had packed road trip treats:)
We could not get enough of the Firehole Canyon Drive, so we passed through it three different times as we toured the park during our stay.
The first full day in the Park we toured the entire lower loop from Old Faithful, back up to Madison over to Canyon, down along Yellowstone Lake and back through Craig Pass to Old Faithful.
The Madison, Firehole, and Gibbon Rivers were so beautiful and peaceful. If these rivers would not inspire you to try a little fly fishing, I am not sure what would!
We were in awe at the view from the Brink of the Upper Falls in the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. It was a full day of so many sights to remember.
