Yellowstone Redux

We really enjoyed our 10-day visit to Yellowstone National Park in May so we felt doubly blessed and privileged to be able to spend an additional three weeks in the park in September/October.  It wasn't the original plan. That was for eight days. Time we had gleaned from shortening our trips to Missoula and Glacier National Park. However, Mr. Misadventures was like a kid in a candy store and it … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #37 – Yellowstone

Last week in Yellowstone! Then we have to go back to the real world of highways and freeways and retail malls.  At least for five days until we get to rural Alabama for RV repairs. But let's not think about that quite yet! Over the weekend we did some sunrise and early morning shoots, but got fogged out or clouded out. There are so many micro-climates in the park, the weather is unpredictable.  … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #36 – Yellowstone

Hey! We're still in Yellowstone! Our one week has turned into two.  Mr. Misadventures is like a kid in a candy store and why take a year off from work if you can't go where you please from time to time! We're actually staying through October 2nd when we will make a five day beeline for Red Bay.  Until then, the Yellowstone fun continues. After four straight days of very early mornings, 6-8 … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #35 – Yellowstone

[Sorry for the delay! I had a technical issue that prevented me from creating or editing a post. I've had this puppy ready to go, just way of getting out!] We decided to cut our trip to Glacier National Park short (don't worry we were still the ten days) because we really missed the fabulous wildlife that you see practically every hour in Yellowstone. We drove 8.5 hours on Tuesday, it was a … [Read more...]

Yellowstone National Park (Part 2)

Our first couple of days in Yellowstone National Park were exciting. Bears and bison and more bears and bison! And babies! But there is a lot more wildlife to see. Like elk. We definitely saw more elk in Grand Teton, so when we spotted them in Yellowstone, we stopped. There were beautiful white pelicans. Isn't this couple adorable? And pronghorn deer. (We saw a lot … [Read more...]

Yellowstone National Park (Part 1)

I didn't prepare for Yellowstone National Park. I actually never really had much interest in visiting. I hate crowds and this park attracts people from all over the world. Even visiting in the off-season, there were more people here than all the other parks we visited this year. Mr. Misadventures had been to Yellowstone before. A four day photography trip last September right in the middle of … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #18 – Yellowstone

Yellowstone has been glorious! My favorite week since we started Project Escape. May is an exceptional time because of all the babies and the post-winter feeding. Usually after about three days of super early risings I call uncle and let Mr. Misadventures go on his own but it is so exciting to see the wildlife that it offers its own form of adrenaline and I haven't been too tired. Although we … [Read more...]
