Weekend Getaway!

This weekend was such a nice weekend! Stephen found out early in the week that he didn't have any tests or homework assignments this weekend, so we were able to make plans! Friday, after I got done with my weekend homework, we went up to Island Park and stayed at a cabin with Nate and Kate Wright, and Brian and Jaclyn Robbert. Saturday morning we drove to Bishop's cabin and had breakfast. It was so good! Then, we went to Big Springs for a little bit! It was gorgeous there! The water was so clear, and the fish were big!

Around 1:30 Stephen and I drove up to Yellowstone to enjoy the rest of the day!

We saw a ton of these deer and a ton of buffalo!
As soon as we entered the park we saw the bald eagle!

Picture of us in front of a waterfall randomly on the side of the road. There was a very deep valley below. (This was so pretty, but you can't really tell in a picture...)

This is a yellow-bellied marmot. It came up right next to us and just started eating what little grass was around. We were talking and moving and it didn't seem to bother it!

This was a thermal area. It was interesting because it was kind of chilly, but when we got out of the car we were surprised how warm it was! All of the white is like ashes or something...
Overall it was a very good weekend! The weather was wonderful (it didn't start raining until we were on our way home from Yellowstone)!
