Our Family Vacation in the Land of the Yellowstone / JULY 13 - 16 2014

We spent a week in July traveling throughout the Yellowstone region and visiting family in Livingston, MT. After many years of wanting to go, this was my first introduction to the area. I can guarantee a return before too long to this amazing country.
