Living in Yellowstone, each day has been different. Some days are full of hiking, wildlife spotting, and secret parties with my coworkers in the park, while others have been less glamorous, going to work and then collapsing exhausted on my little dorm bed to do it all again.
Basically, its become clear that I won’t be able recount every day on this page like I’d originally planned. I kinda tried at the beginning, but after starting to write each evening, I’d be so tired that I was fighting to not fall asleep, and just didn’t really enjoy that way of journalling.
Since I’m gonna have to rethink how I recount this chapter of the blog, I’ve decided to document my Yellowstone travels in a different way.
Maybe a… virtual road trip?
I’m not entirely sold on that title yet.
Nevertheless, the goal of this section is to show you all of the natural wonders to see and enjoy in each of Yellowstone’s villages, and the stretches of road in between. I’ve made it a personal mission to see every sight and stop at every pull-off because Yellowstone has dozens of natural phenomena, which can make planning a trip the park overwhelming. By sharing all of it with you, I hope to help you confidently see everything you want to when you visit!
I think I’m going to do this by following the map of Yellowstone. The park conveniently follows a loop-shaped road, and so that’ll provide us with some direction, and with that in mind, we’ll start at Mammoth Hot Springs at the northernmost end of the park.
So keep a lookout for that! I am so, SO excited to share each and every bit of Yellowstone on this blog, and I hope you’ll follow along with me. So pack your virtual bags, grab your virtual passport and letttttts goooooooo!
Life update 2!
In an effort to make sure I didn’t lose all my precious memories from this glorious 2019 summer, I put all my Yellowstone photos on a flash drive for safe keeping.
And guess what?
I lost the flash drive.
Anyways, I just felt the need to explain why over half of the pics used in these guides won’t be my own. I’ve visited most, if not all the places we’ll discuss, so don’t worry, the info will all be primary-sourced top-notch content. NPS does better photos anyway.
