Back from Yellowstone

We've arrived back in civilization (i.e., Denver) after our camping trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. We had a great time and saw the most amazing things... but we also froze our tails off, with night-time temperatures in the 20s and 30s.

The fire ring at our campsite was buried under 3 feet of snow. (No fires for the first few days!) To add insult to injury, there was no hot water or heat in the bathrooms.

But despite the hardships, we would do it all over again in a heart beat. (At least Karl and I would - I'm not so sure about the girls!)

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the trip:
