Blast from the Past: Yellowstone National Park


I was clicking around on my mother's facebook page when I came across these photos from a family vacation in 2009 to Yellowstone National Park. They brought a smile to my face and I thought they were certainly worth sharing. The above photo was taken from our car as we waited the 5+ minutes for the buffalo to clear the street. These animals are impressive. If one charged our car I'm almost positive the buffalo would have won. Don't worry, we came out of Yellowstone alive.

We were traveling in our family RV (My dad and his RV are pretty much inseparable, he loves that thing like a family member.) and I remember being completely awed by how lovely our surroundings were. If you haven't yet been to the Tetons or Yellowstone, I would highly suggest putting it on your "Must-see" list.

That's a big animal. 
Our dog Henry was quite intrigued by these strange creatures. 
He also likes driving RVs.

We went white water rafting for the first time on this trip. If  you want to laugh...a lot,  pay attention to the changes in my face (and my brother's face) in the front row. 

I may or my not have been a little scared.
I'm not ashamed.

lmao!! i went to yellowstone when i was 18 (?) with my friend's fam and it was so fun! but that was also the time i got something stuck in my eye, on my (hard) contact, my contact got a hole in it, got stuck to my eye, i had to go to the west yellowstone medical center to have them take it off, then walk around the entire day with a patch taped to my eye (of course my patch i mean a cotton ball taped over my eye). it was awesome!! hahah!!

& when i went white water rafting in costa rica we flipped and it was actually the most terrifying moments of my life!!

xo, kim

How fun! This reminds me of how I was so in love with the water buffalo when I visited China and did a Yangtze River cruise... they were everywhere!
