If you ever have even the slightest chance to see Yellowstone National Park, DO IT.
Luke and I have toyed with a vacation there for a few years but little things kept coming up and we never went. When we found out about our move to Maryland, I immediately booked a cabin for the just the kids and I through VRBO because I knew it was something they should see before we left.
I grew up camping but somehow did not develop a love of tents and squatting to pee and sleeping on the ground. It just never became my jam so I found a great little cabin for us that was perfect- we had a bathroom and beds and a mini fridge and microwave. There were tent campers all around us and we had a fire pit so the kids felt like we were out in the wild but I felt like bears couldn’t feast on our intestines while we slept.
We arrived on a Saturday evening, checked in, purchased s’mores supplies, then got our little cabin home set up. We got showers taken (well, Noa and Isca had great showers, Hollis and I got half of a great shower before the water turned ice cold with NO warning) and went to bed.
We spent the next two days exploring Yellowstone!
As we pulled over to snap a pic with this sign another car pulled up. It was a couple in their late 40’s, early 50’s, anyway they held up their camera and motioned taking a picture then pointed at my camera. So, we swapped photos of each other then I asked them where they were from. Spain. We started chatting- their English was about as good as my Spanish so we got along fine…until they asked me to explain what the Continental Divide is. There is a couple in Spain that is still seriously confused about what they were getting their picture taken with. Lo siento.
I’m still editing pictures from the summer so I will post more from Yellowstone again in the next few weeks!
