A Glimpse at Yellowstone – January 16
Today was a busy day full of travel. We left snowy Raleigh early this morning and journeyed to Salt Lake City. We passed time during our 4 hr layover by journaling, grabbing lunch, and getting to know new friends. On our short flight to Bozeman we felt the plane tipping slightly to the right as we all peered out to view the Grand Tetons and what we all feel sure must have been Old Faithful. On our scenic drive through Paradise Valley, we saw large herds of elk and mule deer. We all shared a feeling of awe at the vastness of the rugged landscape. Crossing under the Roosevelt Arch, we finally got our first glimpse of Yellowstone and our adventure began.
