The West

Yellowstone

For Jenny’s Dad’s 60th birthday, the whole family took a trip out West! We stayed 7 days, on a tour bus whenever there was sunlight, and in different hotels each night. The bus travelled counter-clockwise around Wyoming and its bordering states, hitting as many destinations as humanly possible: Denver, Crazy Horse Memorial, Mt. Rushmore, Devil’s Tower, Yellowstone, The Grand Tetons, Salt Lake City, Arches National Park… probably several more I’m forgetting. Look at the pictures.

On the first day, when the tour guide told us that we would be receiving a 5 AM wake up call to get going the next morning, I demanded to know whose crazy idea the trip was. On the last day, after doing an incredible sunset hike in Arches National Park, we were making plans to go back.
