So we made it to West Yellowstone and picked up our third traveling couple Sara & Jarrod Ross. This young couple is so very dear to us. This is going to be our fourth summer in a row workamping together and we have shared many adventures and some really great food together. All six of us met and worked together in Yellowstone the summer of 2016 and that is how this caravan has come together.

This photo shows us six and our friends that are still working in Yellowstone. It is such a dynamic place and leaves an imprint of a special family that forever stays in your heart and soul.

Nothing would be complete without a ride into the park to see some bison. These three were part of a small herd grazing along the Madison River.

The Grand Prismatic hot spring never disappoints. The trail to the overlook was closed because of bear activity. That shot will just have to wait until next time.

Vixen Geyser in the Norris Geyser Basin in Yellowstone National Park, USAVixen Geyser in the Norris Geyser Basin in Yellowstone National Park, USA
Yellowstone has over 10,000 thermal features which is about 25% of the thermal features in the world. You'll never photograph them all but you can always add a few more to your collection. During a walk through the Norris Geyser Basin I came upon Vixen Geyser looking like it could be from the moon or Mars.

From here we head to Bozeman, Shelby and then the Canadian border and on to Calgary. My blog is a bit behind our actual trip because of time and very limited cell service and data restrictions in the remote areas we are driving through. But we'll catch up soon. Thanks for being here and we'll see you soon.
