My Mother and Father took my sisters and me to Yellowstone almost 40 years ago on a family vacation. A National Geographic photographer happened to take a photograph of our family which made the centerfold of the National Geographic special on Yellowstone's Old Faithful geyser. This summer I had the honor of sharing a trip to Yellowstone with my Mother, husband and son. Standing in front of Old Faithful as it erupted took my breath away. Perhaps one day, I will stand there again with my son and his family!
