July 2022 – this was shortly after the Park reopened after it was shut down for flooding. We felt like we had the place to ourselves and saw more bears than ever!
Another fun week at Aspen Grove Family Camp –
And here are a couple of other summer videos –
(I guess I picked songs that made it so the videos can only be watched if you click through to YouTube)
Family Reunion in Yellowstone National Park –
Reunion time! We explored a new (to us) part of Yellowstone National Park this time: Yellowstone Lake. We stayed in cabins near the Lake Lodge. It was 4th of July weekend, but we didn’t notice the crowds until we stopped at Old Faithful on the way out.
An amazing hike in the area is Storm Point Trail. I felt like I was in Ireland with grassy hills and steep cliffs along the water. And we saw a yellow-bellied marmot yawning on a rock.
Over the years I’ve seen a few bears in the distance, but never up close. This time we had front-row seats to a female grizzly foraging and crossing the road in front of us.
Here’s the video slide show –
