Dan's family had to go home on Sunday, but Beckie stayed for another week. We had a lovely visit. While she was here we "played" with art, went to the movies, and went camping in the Beartooth Mountains which sit on the border of Wyoming and Montana just a short drive north of us here. We had a lot of fun taking pictures of the beautiful scenery and lots and lots of wildflowers. (see my flickr)
On Friday (July 11th) we went to Yellowstone National Park. Even though we didn't see any grizzlies we did see a black bear. Beckie was thrilled because she usually visits us in the winter when the park is closed (and the bears are asleep) so she seldom gets to see bears while she is here.
This first bear is the one we saw this week. The pictures below are of the one we saw about a month ago, also in Yellowstone National Park.
