A Few Days in the Park (May 2016)

Greetings all,

Just returned from a few days in Yellowstone. As some know, May in Yellowstone National Park can be wet (rain & snow); though landscapes can sparkle and wildlife viewing can reward. Photography can be a challenge but a bit of luck and lots of patience sometimes provides wonderful opportunities. Below are a few photos.

    Aahhh…memories of days gone by…30+ yrs for us, mi amigo…doesn’t seem possible but it does knowing our two oldest granddaughters will be in 7th grade next year…yikes! Speaking of years, here’s wishing you a happy birthday a few days early…and so, we shall both enter our 70th decade. Crazy…at least you have succeeded at making the most of those 70 yrs tho not sure I can say the same for me…nonetheless, I am a strong believer that the Good Lord has us exactly where He wants us to be. πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸŽ‚
