Our last leg of the journey to California was through Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. I’m so glad we decided to take the slightly longer way to Yellowstone through Montana. Such a beautiful state! And sooooo friendly and trusting. The first gas station we visited let us PUMP FIRST and then pay! WHAT?! We’ve traveled through a LOT of states and we’ve NEVER experienced that.
We actually used maps this trip!
Yellowstone was such a great stop!
Then we stopped to see Old Faithful. I have the sunburn to prove the wait! Old Faithful kept giving us little teases like it was about to go off, but nope! It was really neat to see it!
Next we drove through the Grand Tetons. This was my favorite part of the trip. Such an amazingly beautiful place. Wow.
The place I was most looking forward to seeing was Jenny Lake. See, I was partially named after Jenny Lake. At first, my parents were going to just name me Jenny, but thanks to my mom and my grandmother, they decided I needed a more formal name. Thus, Jennilyn was created. Sadly, I was not the first, but I was at the beginning of a lot of them! I love my name. 🙂
And here I am crossing the Sierra’s, almost to Bret’s family in Cali. 🙂
