After four kids, ten moves and nearly two decades, we are still blissfully in love (most of the time) and I found myself back in the state I was born and raised in. It has definitely been a journey. In fact, on our 18th anniversary we pulled the last of our stuff up over the pass and into Montana, leaving our surprise love, Idaho, behind. But Montana is a great place. The last best place according to some. And we fully intend to explore as much of it as we can! Join us on our continued adventure through life, love and other stuff that comes with it.

Yellowstone Lake

This trip we camped at the Grant Campground on the south end of Yellowstone Lake. There is a geyser basin down there on the lake shore and we hadn't seen it yet. Calla kept asking, "Are we going to the geyser basin?" That strikes me as funny coming from a three year old.

Apparently this geyser basin at one point was the most famous of them all. Now it's nearly forgotten. We didn't see any erupting geysers, but it has some really neat sites.

Most notably, the fact that it is right on the shore. Gorgeous day. A bit chilly, but gorgeous.

A handful of the geysers are actually in the water. At certain times during the year they actually go under water.

One of them is called Fishing Cone. Apparently people used to stand on it and fish. When they caught a fish, they would just cook it in the hot water of the cone.

While we were standing there a group of kayakers paddled by. What a great way to see the sites.

This picture makes me smile. There is steam in the background, but I don't know if you can see it.

Violet decided she didn't want to be in a carrier any more, so daddy took over.

Apparently he's more fun anyway. All she did was giggle.

Anyway, it was a nice little walk. The lake is gorgeous. And then we went back and had lunch before our hike in the afternoon. But I'll tell you about that later.

Happy babywearing!

I stayed at Lake Yellowstone Hotel when we went to the Park in July. Overpriced for the room but the restaurant and string quartet in the evenings were amazing! Looks like you had lots of fun too.
