The Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park

The Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park is the largest hot spring in the United States and the third largest in the world. Its colors match the rainbow dispersion of white light by an optical prism: red, orange, yellow, green, and blue.  We decided to hike up to the overlook for the Grand Prismatic Spring. Once the fog lifted the view was breathtaking.

 

 

A 12-hour day in the Grand Tetons

We spent 12-hours visiting the Grand Tetons after a fresh snow. Hard to put into words the breathtaking day that we shared together. So, I decided to share our fantastic day via photos. Memories that we will cherish forever. Our day started at 4:30 AM. We were at the top of Route 20 for our first photo as we waited for our sunrise. (Okay, maybe we sat there for a while because I was nervous about the icy roads and the 10% grade going down the hill to get to Jackson Hole)  The “above the clouds” view was very similar to what we experienced at Haleakala National Park. 

The Mormon Row Historic District is located at the southeast corner of Grand Teton National Park. Just so happens I love taking pictures of old barns. This area did not disappoint.

French trappers are responsible for naming the three peaks now known as the South, Middle, and Grand Teton. They called the mountains “Les Trois Tetons,” or “The Three Breasts.” The Grand Teton—the tallest of the three—literally means “the big tit.” I’m not making this up. The first photo is from the early morning, and the second photo is from later in the day. The remaining photos are from the rest of the day. We had such a great time seeing such beautiful country for the first time.

Antelope Island State Park, Utah

A beautiful park located on the largest of the Great Salt Lakes islands; features lots of white-sand beaches, hiking and biking trails in addition to a variety of flora and fauna, including deer, bobcats, and of course, antelopes.

Easter Sunday in Zion with some of the locals…

We had such a great Easter this year. We decided to make a quick trip to Zion National Park. The weather wasn’t great, we had on and off rain all day. The eastern entrance into Zion-Mount Carmel Highway was closed due to a winter landslide. We could only travel so far before we had to turn around. However, the weather or road conditions didn’t stop us from enjoying some amazing views, and some of the locals of Zion. 

Catalina & Picacho State Parks

Visitors were flocking to Catalina and Picacho Peak State Parks in Arizona so they can get a glimpse of the explosion of color in the landscape. We were right there with them. Beautiful. 


Such a beautiful color.
