A few of my favorites...

We visited Yellowstone for the family vacation this year.  Eleven hours or so in the car plus McDonald's smoothies on the way and we arrived with the family still intact and speaking to each other.  We rented a house in Tom Miner Basin and spent countless hours watching the elk, deer, and grizzly in the river basin below.  For a mere $25 million you can buy the Grizzly Creek Ranch up the road, but luckily VRBO had something more in our price range.

Yellowstone never ceases to amaze and the kids loved the geothermal features, but not the sulfur smell.  And watching Old Faithful erupt at sunset was definitely worth the wait and long drive.  Here are some of my favorite pics from the trip-
