Yellowstone: Back in the Saddle

Back in West Yellowstone for my third summer. It love it here more each time.
Grant, Melissa, Melissa, and I spent an evening in the park.
This is Grant. He is a local.
Enjoying the view from Canyon.

Best part of this photo- Melissa and Melissa prancing in the background.
Still waiting for the snow to melt up in these parts.

This was a good semester.

It snowed a lot. I like the snow. Isn't it pretty?
I cooked more of my mother's recipes.
Did I ever walk up this sucker? Every day.
Spring Break in Mexico. Huzzah.
The Blue Cottage. My humble abode for the semester. Moving out tomorrow.
School. Friends. Good grades (hopefully).
Japan relief efforts.
Good drives, good conversations, good company.
New eats. New thoughts. I love diners.
Reuniting with Diana (galpal from Europa).

The semester flew. FLEW. "Busy busy."
Mormon convention with cousin Ty.
Worst of the worst this semester: my bedroom's buzzing fluorescent light. Ick.
My best friend in the whole world weds her high school sweetheart, Braden.
Spring. Finally. Enjoyed the outdoors to their fullest this week.
Breakfast at the Original Pancake house with the female friendlies.

"Osama bin Laden is dead, CNN's John King reported Sunday night, citing sources. President Barack Obama is to address the nation momentarily regarding bin Laden's death." . . . Unbelievable.
