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.

Momma and Baby Welcome

Finally, we reach the gates of Yellowstone. Immediately, the weather clears and all that we have heard about this amazing place becomes instantly apparent. It is stunning!

The valley leads us into the upper section of the canyon where we find our first waterfall and a deer along the path. The perfect welcome!

From the canyon we find ourselves climbing once more into the mountains and once again the snow begins. We are getting used to the weather fluctuations by now and just laugh. At a pass, we are welcomed further to this magnificent place by a momma grizzly and her two cubs. They are at a safe distance below our vista, so the sight is exhilarating as opposed to frightening. It's the way we want to encounter these amazing animals not on a hiking path alone! We now truly know we're in Yellowstone!

As we make our way through the park to our destination tonight at the south side in Grant Village, we encounter several more sunny and clear drives interspersed with snow. It's unbelievable. But, completely worthy of the diverse scenery we encounter along the way. Every turn presents another wow!

Our Vue is ready for quite an adventure here!!!


  1. Oh, girls, I am so excited for you! What an adventure. Isn't the West wonderful? I used to think I had been misplaced, being born in Florida, because the West kept calling to me. Thought I never did get into the country you are discovering, I did love everything about the West I did travel.Sounds like you are having a marvelous adventure. ENJOY!

  2. P.S. Forgot to mention the bears. I love bears! So nice to be able to see them and still be at a safe distance. That must have been a great experience.

  3. Yellowstone has always been my favorite national park. So glad you guys get to see it in all it's glory with lots of wildlife too!
