I agree about getting away from "it all" can be a great feeling. I remember a few years back, this really stupid ad showed a man in a canoe on a beautiful mountain lake, talking on a cell phone, and it was presented as a "good thing". Where I choose to camp the cell phone has a message at turn-on of "no service", meaning that I will not be disturbed that day. Of course, I don't camp in Yellowstone park, too many bears there.

Perhaps "waiting to explode" is too dramatic a phrase. But I think there'd be some warning "pre-shock" earthquakes first!

Having a buffalo in Yellowstone mosey up to one's subcompact car also leaves one feeling a bit trepidatious.

On the one hand I would love to see Yellowstone ... on the other hand the knowledge that it's a super volcano waiting to explode makes me a tad trepidatious...

My grandmother lived in Livingston, Montana, a nice place to stay if you are going to Yellowstone. We would always visit the park when we went to see her. Such nice memories.

Thanks for NOT blogging each day (or even feeling the need to do so, which is all too prevalent these days), but instead providing a more thoughtful, overall vacation summary--much better!
