Our Summer Trip to Yellowstone National Park




For our summer trip this year, Fred and I have planned a trip centered on Yellowstone National Park. We thought at first that we would take our camping gear with us on the plane, but a cursory call or two to the Park and to the Jackson Hole area gave us to understand that campsites would be next to impossible to find. So we reluctantly decided to use hotels instead.

Fred, who as usual gets high marks for planning, has been researching stops we might make in Yellowstone and the surrounding area, and he bought a hiking guide for the park. He has gotten the required vacation time- three days at the end of a week and the following weekend. So we have planned to leave Dallas after work on Tuesday, July 15th, and return Sunday evening, July 20th.


Using the Master Index

We took a great many pictures while on our trip to Yellowstone and the surrounding area- so many that I have organized the album pages for this trip so that there is a separate page for each day of the trip. Using the index below, you can jump directly to a specific day if you wish.

When you are done looking at the pictures for this trip, you'll need to use one of the links at the top or bottom of any page to return to this Master Index. There, you will find a link taking you back to the very top of this page where the links to the next album page for 1997 (or the previous page or index, of course) can be found.

We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures. To access the master index, please click HERE.
