Yellowstone National Park

Stretching over three states, Yellowstone is a treasure chest of breathtaking vistas, wildlife, steaming geysers, and bubbling cascades. Each of the four days we spent in the park brought about a different and more impressive side of the diverse ecosystem.

Glacier National Park, Montana

We left Canada and its magnificent mountains behind and headed to the mountains of Montana.

Once again, we thought we’d seen the best of the mountain views, but were pleasantly surprised to take in the beauty of Montana’s best: Glacier National Park and Going-to-the-Sun Road.

Oh, so blue! Lake Louise and Lake Moraine

We took a full day to explore Banff area and we LOVED it! We were a bit limited on activities because we had the dogs with us but we still got to see quite a bit.

We didn’t want to miss out on the famed Lake Louise while visiting Banff, so we headed out mid-day to explore it. As we approached our destination, lit road signs announced the parking lot at Lake Louise was full. We drove on, regardless. When the chateau appeared in sight, we were waved around and out of there by park employees. Bummer.
