Yellowstone National Park ~ Booked!
My wife and I have a goal of traveling to all of the national parks housed in the good ol' US of A. We love camping and the outdoors in general, and there's certainly no lack of parks that have been deemed as great enough to be protected by the federal government. Natural beauty is amazing to us. We try to get out to at least one national park a year and make a road trip of it. 2014 marks the year that we were planning to head to Yellowstone National Park. My wife's never been and I've only 'sort of' been to Yellowstone. I went to Yellowstone while still a teenager and with a tour company where the feeling was that it was much more important to be able to hit a ton of destinations in a short amount of time than it was to be able to go someplace and just take it all in slowly. As it were, my first trip to Yellowstone consisted of arriving at the park, walking around for maybe 20 minutes, taking a couple of photo as Old Faithful blew her top, and back on the tour bus we went. Not terribly exciting.
When I travel with my wife, we definitely take our time and it's our time to slow down and really, to relax and take things easy. No stress. It's all good. We spent a couple of hours this past weekend looking at our options for living arrangements and plan on doing a mixture of car camping and living in one of the swanky lodges in the park. Amazingly, almost all the lodge spots were already filled - and we're planning this trip at the end of June. We did get the spots we wanted though, so go us! We're ecstatic about it!
I've been playing around with an idea using a polling service from surveymonkey.com. I'm not revealing what that idea is yet, but I will say that it's photography-related and it's for the wintery holiday season. If you will, take a sec to answer the poll below. Call it a case study for something potentially bigger in a couple of weeks!
