Two young 50-something females. One big adventure exploring the Americas. Have liquidated everything they own and packed a Saturn Vue with bare necessities to set out on this journey. Planting seeds at each juncture symbolizing their new growth. With an open mind and heart, ready to get a true view of this world.

There are those moments that define ultimate beauty and move us to an emotion far beyond our expectations. Artist Point provides the incredible gift this morning.
We are up early because we're moving north today, planning on ending the day and spending the evening at Mammoth at the north entrance to the park. En route we explore the canyon area and arrive at Artist Point early.
Our ranger friend from yesterday has given good advise for this itinerary and emphasizes the must see vista here. I am overwhelmed. As the short hike brings the amazing spot into view, my thoughts are clear - I don't believe I've ever seen anything this beautiful. The tears flow - it's clearly my moment.
There is no doubt why this is such a photographed and painted area - words can't describe.
The drive from here has many overlooks showing various parts of the high and low falls and all are spectacular. The grand canyon of Yellowstone is equally stunning. Inspiration Point a marvel.
We spend nearly three hours exploring this incredible section of the park. It is a highlight of our trip so far.
The day is gorgeous, the scenery beyond scope and I'll take my morning moment with me for a very long while.
