YELLOWSTONE - America's First National Park

I took SO MANY PHOTOS from our long weekend in Yellowstone and wanted to share them with you! It was pretty hazy in the park from all of the wildfires out west, so some of the photos didn't come out great, but this park is really beautiful and must-see. Alex and I both agree that we love the nature and all of its natural geysers in this park and camping here is also a must. This was our second time visiting Yellowstone and it was still just as marvelous as we last remembered it. It's definitely worth taking 4-5 days to fully see the park (it's really BIG) and there is a lot of driving to be done. We also highly recommend getting up early (think 5 am) to go see some of the hot springs and geysers when the morning sun is coming up and there are few people. The more crowded the park gets later in the day, the less enjoyable it really is. This was our 9th National Park that we've visited together and one of our favorites (rivals Yosemite for the top spot).

 Resident Elk that visited our campsite! We stayed at Bridge Bay Campground and stayed at Jenny Lake during our last visit.

 If you haven't seen buffalo before, Yellowstone is your park to see them. They are everywhere! This one was right next to the road just munching away on some grass and could care less that we were stopped taking pictures of it. We saw maybe 5 buffalo walking along the roadways during our trip.

 Yellowstone Falls from Artists Point. The light was pretty terrible and it was hazy out, so the photo does NOT do this one justice. It's my favorite part of the park by far.
