Memorial Weekend Trip: Part 2, Being Tourists

A neat part of visiting grandparents at the cabin are all the cool tourist sites we get to see in the area. We've been to Yellowstone National Park several times previously and also visited the bear and wolf center in West Yellowstone last year. This year we decided to venture to a lesser-known gem, Mesa Falls. These waterfalls (there are two, the upper and the lower) are a short drive from the cabin and on a nice day, the short walk was quite enjoyable.

The falls were gorgeous and the visitor's center had some neat exhibits, especially for curious little girls. Because it was such a nice day, we decided to head into Yellowstone for the afternoon to see of we could spot some wildlife. Spot wildlife we did! It was definitely my best ever Yellowstone visit.

We saw lots of bison, elk, a black bear, a moose, and some mountain goats. Usually you'll see one or two of these, but certainly not as many as were were able to enjoy. If you ever have the opportunity, be a tourist in this part of the country. It's beautiful and wild and wonderful and you won't regret it!
