Even though we’ll be exploring more of both Cody and Yellowstone this week and next, I thought I’d share what we’ve already seen and done. I mentioned that Jadelyn had been sick. We ended up taking her to an urgent care clinic on Thursday. She had bronchitis and a possible sinus infection, so we picked up an antibiotic and an inhaler. Praise the Lord for antibiotics! She slept that very night without coughing much and has been progressively on the mend since. Today was the last dose of antibiotics and she just about had a glory party! She hated that stuff!
Our day in Yellowstone was a cold one and we hadn’t really prepared for that. Yellowstone sweatshirts help a lot! The flat church kid didn’t seem to notice the cold, though.
When we came to Yellowstone two years ago, the only animals we saw were bison. This time we were more fortunate.
There is a bear in the picture below, but you really have to look. Bailey zoomed the camera as close as she could, but he looks pretty tiny still.
Only two bison this time. We’re hoping to see more when we go back tomorrow.
And last but not least, Canada geese in tall grass.
We cut our trip short that day. Jadelyn wasn’t feeling up to a lot of travel, so we went the shortest route to Old Faithful and back. On the way, though, we stopped to view one of my favorite places. I love the variety of mud pots and beautifully colored pools!
The steam clouded the camera lens and gave us some really cool flower pictures afterward.
Old Faithful never fails to impress new visitors. The eruption was very punctual!
We’re headed back tomorrow. Expect more later!
