We live in a beautiful world, don't we?
Jan here, with a vacation report! Last week, hubby and I celebrated our thirty-fifth anniversary by going back in time to live like it was 1982. No computers. No internet. No cell phones (except to turn it on once a day to see if there were any emergencies at home - there weren't). No television. No news.
Nothing except God's world and each other.
We rose above the tops of mountains...
...and peered into the depths of the earth.
We saw jaw-dropping vistas...
...and delicate details.
We saw more wildlife than I could photograph...
"These peaks have been called the Cathedral Group...more evident here than
in many of the great cathedrals of men is the gothic note.
It is seen in the profiles of the countless firs and spruces
congregated like worshippers on the lower slopes;
it reappears higher in the converging lines of spire rising beyond spire;
it attains supreme expression in the figures of the peaks themselves that,
towering above all else, with pointed summits direct one's vision
and thoughts yet higher." ~ Fritiof Fryxell
We enjoyed our week in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, and enjoyed the travel from here to there just as much - over the Beartooth Mountains on the way, and through the Big Horns on the way home.
Awesome. Just awesome.
This was our dream trip, a year in the making, and we loved every minute.
Would your dream vacation be to the mountains, the ocean, or somewhere in between?
