Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons

I feel like it's been forever since I have been cooking, much less blogging on a regular basis. We just got back from a great vacation in Jackson Hole and Yellowstone. What a beautiful area. Les and I are already planning our next vacation to Jackson Hole.
I took a bunch of pictures, but my camera lens just couldn't capture the beauty of the area. I tried though. The kids loved seeing the wildlife. I enjoyed seeing the animals too, except when they were the cause of a traffic jam.
The bison look better in their own habitat.
The elk were beautiful and peaceful looking. You can't tell from the picture, but the baby was playing with a bird. It was beautiful to watch.
We saw so much beautiful scenery that we became almost blasé. Almost, but not quite.
Did I mention the fact that President Obama arrived at Old Faithful while we were there? No? Well he did, so we ducked into the restaurant for lunch while the crowds surged outside waiting for a glimse of him. Our waitress scared us a little when she said no one could go in or out of the Inn untill 3pm. My day of seeing Yellowstone flashed before my eyes. That would completely ruin our schedule, but she was back soon to tell us we could get out the side doors but not the front doors. Phew! Our day was saved.
I had a great time with my family on our road trip, but I am excited to get back to the kitchen to cook, bake and blog. I will be posting a new recipe soon!


  1. How cool. I'm jealous. We were going to go to Yellowstone this summer, but had some unexpected financial drains. So me only made it on the beginning of the trip we planned and that was to stay with my brother in Denver. At least we still had a blast. But man, Yellowstone would have been awesome. Maybe next year!

  2. Hi PW, Denver sounds fun to me, but if you get the chance Yellowstone is great. Stay inside the park if you can. West Yellowstone is nice, but you will do a lot of driving. Thanks for reading!

  3. Amazing Pics!! What an experience for all of you!

  4. The buffalo burgers at the lodge were great. too bad we couldn't hit that one with the car. we could be barbecuing for weeks.
