We just got back from our yearly trip to Montana. We had a fantastic time, as usual. This year the Wagner family from our ward joined us and the DeBry and Allred families. The Debry cabin in Cooke City is only a few miles out of Yellowstone, but we haven't gone there for several years. This year the Wagners wanted to visit the park, so we all decided to make a day of it.

We had an incredible time. We drove all over the park visiting Mammoth Hot Springs, Old Faithful, Tower Falls, and ate a picnic at Sheepeaters Cliffs. The views were spectacular and we were able to see a ton of animals. We saw antelope, buffalo, elk, deer, a bald eagle, and a mama bear with her cubs. It was especially cool to see the buffalo stampede down the hill, swim across the river, get out, and continue their stampede across the next meadow. Absolutely amazing! On the way back through Lamar Valley the light was so golden and made everything seem even more beautiful. Of course I couldn't help but take a gazillion photos. I uploaded a few into this slide show, but you can see more if you click here.
