Road Trip 2011- Part 3- Big Sky

The third installment of our road trip adventure brings us to Big Sky where we visited Pete and Lindsey. Lindsey works for the resort and hooked us up with a killer deal at a hotel on the mountain and we kicked back for some luxury. Of course kids being kids, they were not most excited about Yellowstone, Grizzly bears, or a rodeo, no it was the pool.

We hit Yellowstone on Thursday morning and drove to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and the amazing Waterfalls there. Holden joined in a Junior ranger program about horns and antlers.

And then we took the short but steep hike down to the Lower Falls.

Whoa, it was amazing!

 Once again, Ian was stuck carrying the kids up the super steep trail. If you are counting, that's 80 pounds!

Luckily, we made it out alive.

On the way out of the park we caught a great view of a herd of Bison.

We also stopped off at Beryl Spring.

H was completely freaked out by the super hot steam blowing on us.

Thursday night we had dinner at Pete and Lindsey's place and then hit the free concert down in the meadow. It was our lucky night because it was a Johnny Cash cover band. Holden was an instant groupie.

Ev was pretty impressed as well.

Holden made 3 friends almost instantly and cried her eyes out when we had to leave at 10 p.m.

Ev logged some serious dance time too!

Join in for the fourth and final episode later this week. You don;t want to miss it. There will be a rodeo, the grizzly and wolf wildlife experience, Old Faithful, and Grand Teton National Park.
