Two breathtaking weeks visiting Yellowstone National Park with family and friends.
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.
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.
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.
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.
