Home Sweet Apartment

I am back from the craziest adventure I have ever had. We had such an amazing time seeing the country. It was UNREAL everything we did and experienced. I may just have to refer you to my other blog if you are interested in hearing about all our exploits:

It is too much to sum it all up in one short post. I can show you some awesome pictures though!
This is us in front of the Grand Tetons. Aren't they magnificent?
This is us in front of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. It is also called the Artist's Paintpoint because it is the most photographed place in the park.

This is the "weeping wall" which is run off from the melting snow and glaciers on the mountains. This was located in Glacier National Park.

On to the animals! We saw 13 bears in one day! You need to be pretty careful about food and hiking in Glacier. They have a very healthy number of bears. In Glacier we also saw some Bighorn Sheep REALLY up close which is uncommon because they keep to themselves & a million mountain goats. We also saw a wolf in Yellowstone which are very rare to see. There were Bison everywhere and we definitely got caught in a few bison traffic jams. Damn animals just sit in the roads!There were many elk in Rocky Mountain National Park as well as a few coyotes and we saw some Bighorn Sheep here too. There were plenty of deer and antelope throughout our entire trip. Oh ew. We saw two rattlesnakes in Theodore Roosevelt Park. GROSS!
Everything was truly amazing though and although FI and I had some tiffs - camping can be stressful and a lot of work - we enjoyed each other's company IMMENSELY. It was really a very rewarding trip.
And you know what? I have hardly thought of wedding planning at all. I am off to read some great blogs and catch up on everything I have missed.

  1. Looks like you had a great trip!

    I find that traveling with FI can be a little stressful at times (but that's traveling in general) but the time spent together can not be beat!
