Sorry everyone it has been one long week. As most of you know, Mom and Allen came out. It was so much fun but I am so tired. I think I saw more in the week they were here then in the 2 1/2 months I have been here. I had already seen most of it but it was all together in 5 days. But overall I had an awesome time and I think they did too. I'm so lucky to have a boss that was nice enough to give me 5 days off in a row so I could spend time with them. So I'm just going to tell you a little about each day that they were here.
Sunday and Monday- I had to work both of these days. Mom and Allen got here around 3pm. I was on break and was walking down to see if they were here and they were walking up. It was awesome to see them. Sunday night we just went out for a drive on the upper part of the park. On Monday night we took an Old Yellow Bus tour. It was really cool. I thought. We saw 3 black bears and 1 cub. There were so cute. After that we all just went to bed.
Tuesday- On Tuesday, we went to Bozeman. We went shopping. It was nice. Then we went down through Big Sky and into West Yellowstone. We looked for where the fire was at but we didn't see it. We ate at Famous Dave's BBQ. So good it reminded me of Matt and Anne's wedding. Then we stayed at Canyon that night.
Wednesday- Even though this is my favorite holiday I didn't see any fireworks. :( But that was ok. We decided to stay in the park because everyone else would be going to watch the fireworks. We got up early this day and we went over Dunraven Pass. We saw a Mom Grizzly Bear and her two cubs. I guess they have been there for 3 weeks. Then we heard about a kill of a bison in Lamar Valley. When we got there was a wolf sitting right by it. He had just ate and was sitting by the area. After that we went back down to Hayden Valley. Where we saw 2 more wolves. They were both gray. After that we went down to Bridge Bay and we went on a Scenic Cruiser ride on the Lake. I didn't get wet this time. Then we stayed in Mammoth that night. Allen went back out to Lamar Valley and Mom and I went to Sheepeaters Cliff. Then we drove around and went up to the upper terraces. It was a lot of fun.
Thursday- We got up early at 7:00am. And we went out to Lamar Valley to see if we could see anything that was on the kill. We didn't see anything. But when we got farther down in Lamar Valley we saw a Mom Black Bear and 2 cubs and also a Black wolf. Then we headed out and over the Beartooth Highway. It was a long drive. When we got back we went down to Dunraven Pass to see if the Grizzly Mom and 2 cubs were still there. We didn't see them so we headed back up to Roosevelt. We went on a Old West Cookout. It was hot but very good food. A Black Bear walked by when we were eating. Then we went back and stayed at Canyon.
Friday- We stayed at Canyon and we went to see the Upper and Lower Falls in the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. From every direction. Then we went to Old Faithful and watched the geyser go off. We got there right after 4pm, so we didn't get to call the college and have them see us on the web cam. Sorry guys. We were thinking about you. Then we ate at Old Faithful Inn that night. Good food and Awesome dessert. I got us to stay in the Old House at the Inn. I thought Mom would love that. It is like a log cabin style. But of course out our window they were doing construction.
Saturday- It was our last day to spend together. How sad. But I will be home in less than 2 months. I can't believe it has been that long. We went down to the Tetons today. Mom and Allen were remembering when they got married 10 years ago. It was a nice time down there and beautiful. We saw 4 moose. Around the same area. Mom was worried she wasn't going to get to see any. But 4 is awesome. Then we came back up to my home- Mammoth. And they are leaving in the morning. I already said bye to them and miss them already. But I can't believe I am going to say this but I can't wait to go back to work.
So overall is was a great and exhausting Week. So I'm going to go to bed now and I hope you all enjoy the pictures.
