So, we're really looking forward to tomorrow's show (2 shows, actually) at Gallatin Valley Mall in Bozeman, Montana. We're staying tonight in Livingston, Montana, which is just over a half hour from Bozeman. That also put us in a perfect spot to check out Yellowstone today!
We had never been to Yellowstone before. If you've never been. . . honestly, I could write about it for a very long time and still not fully describe all that we saw. Basically, in this huge national park, there's a driving loop that goes all the way around. Yellowstone is BIG- the loop is 142 miles long! Everywhere you go, there are pulloff areas with views like these:
As you drive along, you'll pass many fields and meadows that have random steaming spots pouring from the ground. Here's one area where it's becoming a problem:
Of course, several of these areas are famous. Do you recognize this one?
There are quite a few geysers in the park, and many can be predicted- but Old Faithful is the one that's known for being very accurate. It boggles my mind to think that this spot has been erupting every 60 to 90 minutes for as long as we can tell. God's handiwork is truly evident throughout this entire park!
AND- what about the wildlife in Yellowstone? We saw a ton of Buffalo:
We saw just as many Elk:
For us, here was the big one we hoped to see:
We're now a couple of weeks into this tour and we can't wait to see what else is in store. We'll be in Montana, South Dakota, Iowa, Indiana, Florida, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Alabama, and a bunch of other places- and all within the next six weeks! Tomorrow we head to Bozeman. To our friends in Montana- we have some new exciting magic since the last time we were here. Come see us!
