Yellowstone Lodge

Yellowstone 089 (640x480)

 

The lodge is just incredible, made from trees taken from this very spot and built in less than a year! 

 

Yellowstone 091 (480x640)

 

I just can’t imagine building with only hand tools available in 1906.  An amazing feat.

Little gems, wherever you look.  That is one amazing lamp.  I wonder if it’s a Tiffany….

 

Yellowstone 094 (640x480)

 

I don’t believe I have ever seen this much wood in any building….ever.

 

Yellowstone 096 (640x480)

 

This is less than one third of this building, as I couldn’t get back far enough.

See this foot shot?  Yep, that’s Sherry #1 (I was traveling with two) and me.  We are waiting and waiting for Old Faithful (who’s not so faithful anymore) to spout (about every hour to hour and a half).  You can see her in the background to the right over my big feet. 

THIS IS WHEN MY CAMERA BATTERY DIED!

I am off to borrow a picture of Old Faithful as she blows….sorry.

Doing catch up here at home, I promise to get to some blogs soon.  Hugs to all of you.
