First impressions in Yellowstone

The following Yellowstone story was shared by a Yellowstone Park Foundation website visitor.

I was born and raised in Bozeman, Montana, and remember the first time I went to the park. There were so many things to see that were so fascinating and intriguing, I just couldn't get enough of it. As I stood at the Firehole River and watched the steam rising from the geysers it just seemed like there was no better place on earth, and it was almost in my back yard. Here it is over 40 years later and I recently had the opportunity to take my granddaughter to the same area. It brought tears to my eyes as I snapped a picture and saw the sparkle in her eyes, and knew that she was feeling what I felt so many years ago.
