    Default Yellowstone and a special event

    One of my mom's requests for after she died was to have her ashes spread in several places. Yellowstone was one of them. Here are some pics from the trip we took.

    First is a pic of my father, my oldest son and myself. We left last Friday evening and spent the day in Yellowstone then returned Saturday evening.

    Next is a Grizzly Bear we saw while cruising around.

    I can post a few more if you like.

    Yes, please post more. It is nice to see you and your family! The bear is something we don't see often where we live. How close were you to it? The photo makes it appear as if you were right along side him.

    Cheers,

    Grand Canyon of Yellowstone

    Upper Yellowstone Falls - LOTS of water going over that cliff!

    Wildflowers along the Bear Tooth Hiway. You can see Bear Tooth mountain in the pic (Upper Left).

    Thank you for the pictures. I can understand why your mother wanted her ashes scattered there.
