It all began on Taco Tuesday, as all good stories must.
Alyssa, Kelly, and I went to Don Joaquin's last Tuesday and ate tacos on the lawn in front of the HFAC. Somewhere in the conversation I mentioned off-handedly that the National Parks were free that week. The conversation went a little something like this: Kelly said, "I have family that lives an hour outside of Yellowstone." Lys continued, "Oh, we should go." All of us:"No, really we should go!" We made plans to head on the road right after Jalynn's wedding in Salt Lake.
We lucked out BIG TIME! The park was relatively empty and we had perfect almost fall-like weather. The clouds hung low and there was slight rain, but it was beautiful. Nothing like a little gloomy skies + some Bon Iver & First-Aid Kit to make you feel at one with nature.
Megan's one big wish in Yellowstone was to find bison. We pulled over at the first sight of bison only to realize later that there was bison in the park for days!
^^reppin' my city!
^^I couldn't get over this DANGER sign! That cartoon boy with the fannypack—flashback to the '90s.
^^Meg definitely got tree sap all over her leggings from sitting on the tree stump two pictures above. Classic.
^^Just getting comfy on the air mattress. I loved having these girls with me in the mountains. It was fun to just escape the bubble that is Provo for even just a little weekend.
