This is where we got to go....

We went to Jackson Hole, WY! It was so beautiful. The pictures do it NO justice. I so want to go back. It was very cold, but just soooo amazing. We left Abby with our parents while we were gone (it would have been way too cold for her there). I miss it. :)
The above picture - I just thought the sky looked so neat this morning.
This is Jackson Hole townsquare. The arches are made of elk horns, and obviously they light up at night. Very pretty.
One of the many times we were awed at the beauty. These are part of the Grand Tetons Mountain Range.
So pretty.
We were just riding down the road one day, and there was a buffalo. Beautiful in front of the mountains.
This little church has no electricity. It's TINY. And beautiful. They actually have service there during the warm months. We could go inside, and there is this huge window and it looks out at this view of the mountains. Amazing!
Just showing all the snow in some areas!
A big horn sheep on the side of the mountain.

We went snowmobiling into Yellowstone. That was a lot of fun!
We got to see Old Faithful erupt. It was pretty neat.
The only bad thing about the day we went into Yellowstone, was that it was snowing so much. Blizard like conditions, so everything was dark, and hard to see because of the snow.
We got to go on a sleighride into the National Elk Refuge.
We had so much fun. It was very pretty that day.

On the last day, we went snow tubing. That was fun. I felt like a little kid again...You could FLY down that mountain.

We didn't want to leave! We missed Abby too much to stay longer though.

Ben ate Buffalo, (not recommended - it was awful), and Elk, (he said it was really good). It was absolutely an amazing experience, and so beautiful. We were so blessed to be able to experience it.
