The second day in Yellowstone. I spent the whole day seeing everything between the Madison campground and Old Faithful. Eight hours of stuff to see on 15 miles of road. I love the geysers. I love the hot springs. I love the endless blue pools. And the whole time I'm thinking about the fact that I'm standing in the caldera of a volcano. Craziness!

This is my "I can't believe I survived that drive - it was the hardest drive I've ever done - where's the beer - I need one now" face. I decided that it would be a great idea to drive into Yellowstone from the Beartooth Highway. I read about it in my book and the author said it was one of the best drives in the country. Why not? I was driving from western ND through Montana to Yellowstone, I might as well.
Well. It was the windiest, steepest most stressful drive I have ever taken. Good thing the weather was perfect. I couldn't imagine driving it if it were windy or rainy, ugh. I'm glad I did it. It was beautiful. I don't think I need to drive it again.

Me and the Scion ready to hit the road. This is day -1 of my epic road trip west. I finished work, hopped in the car and drove to Fargo. I was anxious to get out of town.
That's the World's Largest Buffalo. He lives in Jamestown, ND. You're jealous. I can tell. Today I ran 12 miles in Fargo - a great early morning run - and then drove to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I stopped at several roadside attractions along the way.
Hiking the Lower Paddock Trail in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. A good hike. I was glad to get on the trail after "car exploring" the park all morning. A 7.2 mile hike, not too shabby.
Catching up is going to be a slow process, but stick with me. 16 more days of vacation photos to peruse. Plus the three days since I got back. I'll get caught up.

Fair-goers can take pictures with our anchors and reporters. I waited until the line died down and had some fun with Matt and Jamie. This is a photo in a photo in a photo in a photo in a photo in a photo in a photo. And in order to show you that photo, I had to take a photo of the photo. Recursion is fun.
Jumping behind the building with Matty. Last day of the fair for me. Until next year!
