If you want to read all the nitty-gritty details about the trip -- where we went, what we saw, what we thought of the accommodations, etc, you can find them all on my husband's Simple Family, Complex Life blog.
Early (very early) last Saturday morning, we crawled out of our sleeping bags and set off towards Grand Teton National Park with the hopes of getting there around sunrise.
Our first glimpse of the mountains:
Our after-breakfast photo shoot. We joked that it looks like we took the picture with a blue screen and photoshopped in the mountains afterwards.
After a short hike (to meet the Junior Ranger requirements):
One last picture before heading up the John D. Rockefeller Memorial Highway to Yellowstone National Park:

Picnic lunch in the parking lot:
More geyser activity:
More wildlife, this time a grizzly bear on the side of the road:

Sunset at Yellowstone:
What an amazing day exploring two national parks! We all agreed that we need to go back when we have more time to spend seeing the sights.
