I wish something exotic had happened today in Yellowstone Park so that I could have you all on the edge of your seats, holding your breath, waiting for the end of the tale.
Yes, there are still piles of snow here.
It was spitting snow when I went for a walk, but being a born again walker, I forged ahead.
The dogs are for my friend, Teresa, who is a dog groomer and for anyone else who happens to love them.
I like the twisted dead trees around here.
I would love to have one in my front yard, but I hear it's a Federal offense to even take a pebble from Yellowstone Park.
You can't see Old Faithful anymore because of this.
Actually, you can see it, I just find tourists in funny clothes to be a distraction.
I was so tempted to take a picture of a huge butt crack on one of the tourists sitting on a bench, but I was afraid she would turn around and hurt me.
It was freezing today, and "they," the invaders, were wearing flip flops with their winter coats. I am standing on my soap box right now. If any of you come to Yellowstone Park, I must insist or even demand that you actually go see something besides Old Faithful.
Get out on a trail for heaven's sake! It is said that 95% of tourists never get out of their cars. They just clog the roads by pulling over every time they see a bison...sometimes they don't even pull over....just stop dead in the road. They whip out cameras and tripods worth thousands of dollars...I am not impressed.
This is the Old Faithful Lodge. This is a beautiful place to sit inside, if the weather is bad, and watch Old Faithful go off. There is an unobstructed view from the lounge.
The Old Faithful Inn, on the other hand, does not face Old Faithful. That's a head scratcher. A man designed it....need I say more. All of the guests want a room with a view of Old Faithful, but there is none. There are trees in the way and we don't cut down trees here. My suggestion to the guests is "GET OUT OF YOUR ROOM! IT IS RIGHT OUTSIDE! Sorry about that. Capital letters are annoying, but so are the guests sometimes.
I have the next two days off and the weather is supposed to be snowy, slushy, and yucky, but I have to get out of the room and see something. I promise that I will get in trouble and take you along for the ride.
I haven't forgotten about the bison poo Christmas ornament contest. Just trying to build some tension and anticipation. Stay tuned for my exciting adventures from Yellowstone Park. I think the blog will be better than the movie.
