If you’ve been around my blog for any amount of time, you’ve probably realized that nature moves me. Creation never fails to remind me that there’s a Creator God. I have well in excess of 100 posts connecting Glorious Creation with a Glorious God as revealed thru His Glorious Word.
And thus, I find roadtrips to be immensely wonderful. My Teen? Not so much. I’ll not put words in his mouth – he has plenty of his own – and you’re welcome to read his account from his perspective. (I must warn you, however, that he makes claims of having his “maturity” grossly underestimated, all while presenting you with a close-up picture of a huge buffalo pooping HUGE poop. ‘nuff said.)
On our drive up, we drove the Western route (where the bulk of the geothermal activity is) thru Yellowstone. On our drive back, we drove down the Eastern side (where the bulk of the wildlife is). We were not very far into the park when Big Dude spotted this adolescent Grizzly not too far off the road.
And where there’s wildlife … there’s sure to be some traffic back-up ;-).
Very fun to see both wildlife and geothermal activity side by side.
So there you have it. “There are a few sights to see, but most of the time you're looking at trees, and hills, and shrubs. Nothing you can't see on the freeway.” (The Teen’s words, not mine!)
Next up, more “freeway sights” at the West Thumb Geyser Basin and Grand Teton National Park …
