Read about Yellowstone National Park

Our family's favorite vacation was to Yellowstone National Park where we did a lot of hiking. This is a photo of the falls of the Yellowstone River in the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. The trail we hiked to view this fall was many sets of steep steps anchored into the canyon wall with steel.

These flowers remind me of the beautiful catawba rhododendron that we saw in the Smoky Mountains when I went there with a graduate class in June 1999. This class was called the Ecology of the Southern Appalachains and was fun -- even though it rained every day of the week that we were camping in the Smoky Mountains!
