In the summer of 2009, just over a month after I graduated from college, my family and I took a road trip to Yellowstone National Park, using West Yellowstone, Montana as our base camp. I’m pretty sure this is the last time I road tripped with my family somewhere, at least for years afterward.

Yellowstone is one of the most amazing places. It should be on everyone’s bucket list (especially before the supervolcano explodes!).

At the midway basin area in Yellowstone, I went a little crazy with my camera. The colors, the stark landscape, the wild! I loved it.

(PS, little did I know that in 2014 I would be back at the midway basin with S. as we moved him out west, walking the very same planks and trails).
