Yellowstone/JH- Day 1

For about a year, we have been planning our trip to Yellowstone and Jackson Hole. Chris and I made this trip 9 years ago on our honeymoon, and Allison and Anthony experienced it a few years back also. I will really excited for my parents to spend an extended time here for the first time. 
We got to the airport at 4:15 am....

Coop wasn't so sure what to think about this early morning. 

Dad couldn't pass up the airport chapel on this Sunday morning. 

Two peas in a pod

We flew into Jackson Airport, which has to be one of the most beautiful in the world. It is right at the base of the Grand Tetons. After getting our luggage and stopping for a few photo ops, we headed on to Yellowstone.

It's a short drive from Jackson to Yellowstone. We got there by early afternoon. We saw some wonderful waterfalls and spent some time exploring Lake Yellowstone before heading to our cabins for the night.

Just after we got unpacked, we looked up and saw this very large visitor roaming behind our cabin. 
After dinner, we went out to watch for wolves (we didn't see any) at one of their favorite feeding spots.

I just love these two.
Our first day was long and so wonderful.
