Yellowstone Views - Falls

In early August the we traveled to Montana for my husband's sister's wedding. He decided we would go a few days early and get to see Yellowstone and some of the places he lived as a child.

Yellowstone is definitely beautiful and I wish I felt better to enjoy the view. Seems I was most miserable the whole trip.

We walked the trail a little to see the lower/upper falls
I had heels on. I didn't expect to be out walking. 
The man decided I needed a pair of walking shoes, so we dropped by K-mart for a cheapie on sale. I'm used to cheapies, plus I always take care of my things so cheap or expensive, they will last. Unless they are really just not made well. 

He intended for more walking so that was a must. Of course I don't mind walking. I mind when a trip is simply no fun at all.  I did try to adjust my attitude moment by moment, but it was a feat for the ages I tell you! 

I'm however very glad the kids got to have this experience. 

Have you been able to visit Yellowstone National Park?

  1. Your pics are amazing and the children are beautiful. I'd love to get out there some day and see Yellowstone, too.

    1. Thank you Lynn and I hope you do get to visit. It is quite an interesting place.

  2. i would love to go to there one day... glad you managed to get shoes that were a bit better for walking than heels ;)

    1. I hope you do get to visit Noelle.
      And yes on the shoes! I so didn't plan on anything my mind /heart was a mess

  3. That park is wonderful Colette! The pictures of your children are also lovely.

  4. Yes, I went a couple times as a child and absolutely loved it. I'm so sorry that your trip wasn't a good one.

    1. So glad you had the experience Liz.
      Wished I got to enjoy it more. Ahh life eh.

  5. I haven't been, but I would love to see it. I had a trip in NYC once that was miserable, but years later looking back, I'm so glad I went because we really saw some one of a kind things. :)

    1. I forgot to say I love your pictures!

    2. I know what you mean.
      It has me swearing off going on anymore trips. Just tired of the same feeling and fighting.

      And I hate to seem unappreciative and to hinder anyone having fun, so I'd rather not go.

      Thanks Rosey.

  6. I haven't been to yellowstone. We have something similar close by called Yosemite - not exactly the same. But they are both very beautiful. Glad you had some time off.

    1. Thank you Amanda.
      I think we've been to Yosemite too! I just remember a massive rock though, can't remember much.


Thank you for visiting. I love your comments and will visit you also if you have a hyperlink. #ThisIsTheDay
