What a spring break it was. I decided not to go home for spring break this year. I stayed in the cold weather of Montana. Lucky for me I have an amazing boyfriend who took me to some great places around Montana and Wyoming that I had never ventured to.
The highlight of my trip was I got to see Yellowstone National Park! This was my first time getting to see the park. I didn’t know what to expect but I loved every minute of it. The park only had one road open but it was a beautiful place to see for my first time.
There was so much snow still left in the park but it was a beautiful day. The sun was shining and there were animals everywhere! On the drive up we saw more elk than I have ever seen in my life. This is a prime spot where the elk migrate.
Once we got into the park it was full of bison! I had never seen a wild bison and that day I got to see hundreds of them. We got to see them up close and personal as they all traveled on the roads. The funniest thing was their crazy hair they had. It was like a little afro, some groomed and others thrown about. I loved it.
Not only did we see bison and elk, we also saw antelope, sheep and a beautiful red fox. The fox was colorfazed and just so fun to watch. We were looking at all the calcite springs when I spotted this fox prowling around. We sat and watched him forever hoping we would see him pounce. Some hikers ran him off and he decided to stick close to the buffalo which also ran him off.
The drive was just stunning. The mountains reminded me of home. They were so high and covered in beautiful white snow. Of course seeing the untouched snow made me wish I had my snowmobile there.
It was such an amazing trip and I can’t wait to go back in the summer and hopefully see a bear and wolves!
