    Wyoming 2017 – Yellowstone National Park (Tag 7)

    Today we entered Yellowstone from the East Entrance. Do you know the feeling when you’ve waited for something a seemingly endless time and all of a sudden, it’s there? And the day was full of impressions, with blue skies, snow and ice, the lake, geysers and fumaroles, waterfalls, bison and elk… Still some roads closed […]

    My plans about writing in this blog during our three weeks travel through Wyoming changed somewhat – we were on the road a lot, and the other days we visited family and friends, and our days were pretty full. So I’m going to start again with the day of our arrival and tell about our […]
