Grand Teton & Yellowstone National Park
I can't believe it's almost one year since I did this trip with my family. Transiting from life in Togo to US flew by fast and couldn't keep up my blog post.
After our time in West Africa, we visited a few national parks across the US last summer.
This was our first time camping as a family, but we really enjoyed it. The boys loved running around in the forest, touching dirt, finding animals, swimming, and, of course, making S'mores over the campfire.
I was totally amazed by how huge America is. I was also awed by the power of the nature. The Grand Tetons show a different appearance throughout the day. I love their transformation from the sunrise to sunset, and even at night. I have always been passionate about lighting affects images of scenery.
We stayed at Grand Tetons for four days, then we moved on to Yellowstone National Park. We knew that it was hard to get a campsite in Yellowstone, so we woke up really early ( like 2 a.m.!) and drove up. We were the first ones to arrive at the campground, so we got a really nice place. The campground we stayed at in Yellowstone was called Slough Creek. It was the smallest of the campsites at the park, but I think it was prettiest. There was a nearby river, and it was very quiet and calm. If I go back to the park ( and I'm sure I will!), I will stay in the same campground.
As the sun rose, bison welcomed us to Yellowstone. I had never seen them in person, and I was amazed how big and powerful they are. I was both excited and speechless when I saw them.
As everybody knows, Yellowstone is a HUGE park. It's impossible to see everything in only a few days. So we decided to see main attractions: Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Pool, Mammoth Hot Springs, Lower and Upper Falls... The unique form of nature was so spectacular, and I just couldn't get enough of it.
The next time I visit these parks, I would love to go in winter in order to experience the different faces and expressions they offer.
