After a number of trips to Yellowstone National Park, I am sharing my tips for planning a trip to Yellowstone including how to get there, accommodation recommendations and suggestions on what to do.
I have been fortunate to be able to visit Yellowstone National Park a number of times. Each trip has been different and each time I learned how to do things better the next time. I am sharing my tips for planning a trip to Yellowstone National Park to help you put together your perfect bucket list itinerary.
As I was planning a Yellowstone and Grand Teton road trip focusing primarily on photography, I decided to do a one way Salt Lake to Yellowstone itinerary, which I am sharing here.
I’ve been fortunate to visit Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park twice in the last few years. On my first visit I flew into and out of Jackson and did one big loop through the two parks. This time, I got a better flight deal into Salt Lake city so I opted for a one way route ending in Bozeman, Montana.
There is something about the symmetry of a perfect mirror image that never gets old for me. Or the juxtaposition of the inside and the outside of a window reflection. As a result I am always drawn to photographing reflections. Sometimes the reflections make up the whole photo and sometimes they are just a small element, but with each trip, I always come back with a few more.
Here are my favorites from 2017, at the same time, chronicling my travels for this year.
I enjoy taking quilting classes and learning new techniques. Not long ago, I had the opportunity to learn paper piecing in one of the Judy Niemeyer classes at the Quiltworx retreat center on Flathead Lake, Montana, near Kalispell. It was a relaxing week with lots of instruction, lots of food and lots of sewing.
As the sun rises, it casts a golden glow on the high mountain peaks overlooking the Swiftcurrent River in Glacier National Park, Montana. A perfect example of why it is important to continue to protect the natural beauty of our National Parks and National Monuments.
