Living in the Moment – West Side of Yellowstone

So, here is the continuation of our “Living in the Moment” series from last September. All the “Living in the Moment” posts are at the bottom of this post if you want to catch up.

Sunday Stills – Orange

Cauldron of Fire where a skeleton is sacrificing another skeleton's head at Halloween.

Moving into Fall (my favorite season), Halloween will be here soon. Next to Christmas, Halloween is my favorite holiday. We usually go all out and have a massive display of goons and ghouls with purple and orange lights flashing down our walkway for trick-or-treaters to scamper up the path if they dare! This year, it is not going to happen.

Sunday Stills – Winter Snow – nonexistent

Since I live in Florida, Winter and Snow are not in my vocabulary. In Jacksonville, it will get chilly and we will even have freezing temperatures on some nights from January-March. It’s rare we have a hard freeze. A hard freeze is temperatures that dip below 28-30 degrees fahrenheit for several days. That never happens here.

Sunday Stills – Nature – East vs. West

Nature is a broad realm of the natural, physical and material things existing in our world and/or universe. It is a wide spectrum of living and non-living entities. For me, it is all about wildlife and the planet we call home. There is so much to explore that we can’t see it all in a lifetime, but I can share a few things that I have experienced in my few years on Earth.

SQUAREs – Perspective – Along the River

On the 4th day of our vacation, we paddled the Yellowstone River in Montana. At one point, we had a problem with water coming into the boat. We pulled over along the river rocks, unloaded and fixed the scupper.

Lower Brink – Grand Canyon of Yellowstone

here were plenty of spots for social distancing, however, some of the must-see places were screaming with tourists (just like us). We did find some out of the mainstream places to find serenity.

The only sound I could hear when I closed my eyes was the river flowing. What stress??? I was on vacation!

CEE’S BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – Natural Benches

Natural bench made out of a tree on String Lake in Grand Teton National Park.

Today’s post takes us back to our vacation from September, 2019 when we explored Grand Teton National Park. Sometimes you have to improvise to have a bench to sit on. Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Benches

Living in the Moment – Leaving Idaho – Back to Yellowstone

Moving along the river with his cows, was the biggest bull elk we had seen in either Yellowstone or Grand Teton. We had seen some big bulls but this guy was a monster. If a large bull elk weighs 700 lbs, this bull would have been at least 800 lbs.
