Here’s basically what we did on our trip. It was a very fast passed trip and there was only one campground were we stayed for two nights, every other campground we only stayed in one night. I uploaded some pictures to flickr [click here].
We got back from church, finished packing, and left around noon. We had a great drive over the mountains to eastern Washington stopping several times in the gorgeous cascades to stretch. We then made camp near Grand Coulee Dam then went to see the laser show at the dam.
We slowly meandered towards southwest Washington, but a good chunk of the day was spent swimming. We camped near Palouse Falls.
We broke camp early to get to Pullman for dads and my meeting with the head of the Architecture department and Washington State University [the college I plan on attending in two years]. After spending what seamed like forever getting lost at the WSU campus we finally had our meeting then headed off for Yellowstone. We camped near the park boundary.
Wednesday and Thursday
We spent both days hiking and seeing LOTS of wildlife. As a photographer I was in heaven.
We headed up towards northern Montana stopping at several dinosaur museums on the way [my brother LOVES dinosaurs]. We camped just south of Glacier International Park.
If I loved the wildlife photos I got Wednesday and Thursday, I REALY REALY REALY loved all the great views in Glacier. We went on one big hike between two hills and a view of other mountain. The hike was steep but non of us noticed being out of breath, the views were to awesome.
Big day of driving home. This was the day that I accidentally deleted all the photos from my camera. I was playing with it and I thought that format meant to edit one picture-apparently it means to delete every single last picture from the card. I was heartbroken. Thankfully once we got home we were able to download some good recovery software and save all of my photos.
