The Honeymooners....in Island Park, ID. and Jackson Hole, WY.

The Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center in
West Yellowstone, MT.

Austin in front of the Bear Exibit . I was actually very surprised with how fascinated he was with how big the bears were, we were actually there most of the day.

After we stayed in Island Park for a couple of days we drove though Yellowstone National Park and down into Jackson, WY. We stopped on our way through the park to look at a couple sites.

Austin had never been to see Old Faithful before and could not understand why we were waiting for 45 minutes in a huge crowd.....then he understood.

I don't remember the name of this waterfall, and you actually can't see the whole thing....you'll just have to trust me when I say it was pretty.

We actually didn't see very many animals driving through the park. We figured it was way to hot. I think we saw one deer and a couple of buffalo, but they were to far away to even bother getting the camera out.

We pulled over to get a picture of Jackson Lake on our way into Jackson. We found out the man who took this picture for us was a foreigner, we guessed from Europe, but he and Austin signed everything out and he took our picture.

This picture was Austin's idea. He thought it would be fun for us to take a picture at the Montana state line, frame it, and give it to my parents who were moving with my two youngest sisters (Emma & Kelsee) soon after we got back from our honeymoon. The first time we drove by the sign there was no one else at the pullout. We figured we would try to catch some one on our way back out. Luckily a family was pulled over and could take our picture. We had almost run out of light.
