me at Old Faithful

Glacier Nat'l Park

can she swim??!













these red tour buses abounded in
Glacier...I made a point of waving
to every one I saw, without many waves
in return!


She should NOT be on that wall--GET DOWN!












At Glacier, the road collapsed and they had to bring in the heavy equipment to get us out...JK!




A rather wary expression...

At the Little Bighorn battlefield.








fireworks!




At the art museum in Cody WY photos were allowed!

At Yellowstone...that's me, far right...yes, that is the hat I wore!

Hey Bethany. Thanks for following! My family went to Yellowstone last fall. It was pretty cool. And the bison caused a lot of traffic jams, just like in your photo, except sometimes with whole herds.

Bethany said...

Welcome, Jacob! Thanks for following, your blog is pretty hilarious--which I'm keen on, lol.

Yes, that was an exciting moment, though I was most disappointed not to see any bears!

Jacob R Parker said...

Yeah, we were fortunate enough to see a bear. It caused quite a commotion, crossing right under the road bridge, and of course the wave of people are snapping pictures and rolling film on one side, pause, then rush to the other side. I think the bear itself could have cared less. I don't remember if it was a grizzly or a black bear.

nice...one does hear about "bear jams"...as I said in post a bit further down the page, "Be Bear Aware!" was the cheesy slogan everywhere. "Bears can get into bathrooms, but they can't get out"--but, as that was posted inside one of the camp facilities, it was a little late!

Anyway, love the pictures! Looks great! Will write soon.
