In the middle of a crazy hot July, my dad and I managed to pull off in a road trip to Wyoming. My dad already had the trip planned for himself, so in typical Vanessa Fashion, I invited myself! We visited extended family and spent a few nights camping in Yellowstone. It'd been about five years since I had last visited and this time around I wanted to spend more time exploring. We traveled from Upper Falls to the Grand Tetons and pretty much everything in between. And I even made a few furry friends while I was there, too! 

Three days was just the right amount of time. We strategized, somewhat, to make sure that we wouldn't miss out on anything. I had seen the big, touristy attractions the last time I was there, so this time I wanted to explore the lesser travelled areas. If I could go again, I'd love to go in the fall. No real explanation other than I think it would be pure magic and there would be waaay less people. A win win.

If you made it to the very end, you're my hero. Which one struck a chord with you? Which one made you stop and stare? Which one should I print and put in my new apartment? I need your vote since I only have room for ONE PRINT and it needs to be the right one. 

Also, in case you missed it: Taken nearly 80 years apart, both my grandma and Yellowstone will forever hold a most special place in my heart. I love you and miss you everyday, Grandma.
