Yellowstone

September 20, 2016

It was a gorgeous day in Yellowstone and the start of our conference. I know of a lot of people who travel all over the world for conferences, fly in, do their business and fly home without ever seeing any of the area. We are fortunate to have time both pre and post education, to educate ourselves on the flora and fauna of the region. Randy and I can’t stay for the post, but we did get to tour Yellowstone in a whirlwind tour today. We were blessed by fabulous weather. 

At times I felt like we were  in an episode of wild kingdom! We saw loads of elk, bison and antelope, along with a female big horned sheep (right next to the road), a gray wolf stalking an antelope and a black bear! We saw male bisons fighting and elk mating. Pretty amazing sites! 

We got to see Old Faithful erupt, albeit 20 minutes behind schedule. Hundreds of folks were lined up for a long time waiting! 


We saw results of forest fires and the devastation they caused, but also saw how the forests are coming back. The moose population moved out but is slowly coming back. 

The aspen are beginning to turn color, with the younger ones starting the show.

Internet is getting a bit slow, so I will try to add some more photos via facebook. Amazing day, great discussion and fabulous sites! I was 7, the last time I saw this, so it has been a great experience.

    Perhaps the MG should plan some National Park trips. Did you speak about the parasite that is plaguing the river and preventing fishing/water activities?

      Problem is it is hard to get rooms in a national park in a block. We did see tons of folks fly fishing throughout the park.
