The Monday after graduation Logan and I went on a camping trip to Yellowstone with Logan's parents Tony and Relda. We hiked around Jenni's lake and saw some amazing waterfalls and took a shuttle boat ride around the lake. We camped in Yellow Stone at Bridge Bay and did all of our cooking outside. The menu consisted of pigs in a blanket, roasted chicken, and pancakes. Relda came to Yellowstone 40 years ago to work at Lake Hotel. It is a beautiful hotel built in 1909 right on the lake. We walked through the hotel and listened as Relda told us stories of when she used to work there. Of course Logan had to get naked and jump into a large body of water while we were there. At the camp ground there were no showers so Log did he next best thing and went swimming in a river in the middle of the park. This was my first time to Yellowstone even though I have lived right next door for four years now. We saw lots of animals and went on some beautiful hikes. To end the trip we watched Old Faithful go off while eating ice cream. Big thanks to Tony and Relda for taking us on a fun camping trip.
