Vacation from the vacation

After several days “roughing it” in Yellowstone National Park (I consider a cabin with no television or wifi roughing it…We did have running water because…toilets), I am now safely and happily tucked away in a Marriott Hotel with a bed, wifi, a bar in the lobby, a shower with unlimited hot water, and…no squirrels barking at my windows.


Sure, nature is wonderful. Beautiful. I loved getting in touch with her, but that’s only good for a few days. I’m spoiled. I admit it. I accept it. I don’t care if you judge me. Yellowstone is lovely. I enjoyed it. And now, I am back in my natural habitat…


Tomorrow we are off to Mt. Rushmore for more hiking, more sunburns, more ooohing and ahhhing and making memories with the offspring. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving all this family time, but seriously…can’t we bond at a spa?

Knocked a few things off the ol’ bucket list including Yellowstone in general, Grand Prismatic Spring, and Devil’s Tower.

Here are a few pictures from the trip. I’ll see you when I get home… If I survive…

  1. Enjoy. When I did car trips with my mom and dad and sister many many moons ago, my sister and I considered motels with no pool as roughing it. 🙂 I also remember the time we stayed at Niagara Falls (this was the huge road trip to Mackinac and then across Canada and back down through the Falls) — I had to — gasp — share a bed with my sister. Trust me, that was roughing it. So, I’m with you — spa vacations sound good — especially if they have cabana boys.
