Six in Six

 Family Vacation Pictures!
Leave now while you still can!

This trip was somewhat of a re-creation of a long ago trip
with two girls who were about the same age as the grandchildren.

It fulfilled the mama's dreams for her children to see it too.

We picked them up at the Billings, Montana Airport.

We were 

Happy, Happy, Happy!

Our first night
("How many nights are we staying here?")
 was at Gardner, Montana - 

the north entrance to the park

Where we had a close encounter

with some wildlife

as we meandered 

through on our way to

Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

We spent the second night across from the elk preserve.
("How many nights are we staying here?").

 The beauty and grandeur 
of the Grand Tetons took our breath away

where Papa decided his favorite thing was being old enough

for a lifetime pass to any National Park.

We headed back to Yellowstone

for an Old Faithful afternoon

and seeing everything along the way 

to our 
next hotel in West Yellowstone, Montana.
("How many days are we staying at this hotel?")

The next day we drove through the

Gallatin Mountains

to another hotel room in Billings, Montana
where the daddy flew back to Texas.

On the fifth day we stopped at The Little Big Horn
National Monument
and ate Indian fry bread just outside the entrance
at the Trading Post,

on our way to the Black Hills 
where our next night was in Custer, South Dakota
("h o w  m a n y  n i g h t s  a r e  w e  s t a y i n g  h e r e?").

Day six was spent seeing as much

of the Black Hills sights

as we could possibly


in one day.

Then we drug, dragged, drugged
our tired booties to the next hotel
in Deadwood, South Dakota
("How many.....?")

These well traveled children saw
One breathtaking view after another
Two grizzley bears
Three dozen geysers
Four National Parks
Five states (counting Texas and North Dakota)
Six hotel rooms
Six Days

If you haven't seen all this beauty in person,
get there as fast as you can!

You are a true friend if you made it to the end of this post.

Thanks for stopping by 
and thanks for staying!
