On the way to NARAM, the national model rocket contest, my brother Dan and I took a short side trip to Yellowstone Park.

Here I am next to yellow stone by Yellowstone Falls:

Yellowstone Falls is not really that big.

We saw deer and antelope as well, but no pictures. -The End

That looks like a lovely side trip. I am a bit jealous; I would like to get out and canoe on a lake like that.

I know they allow boating (and fishing) on that lake. The altitude is on the order of 7,000 feet, so be prepared to take it easy if you actually do go there.

I got your postcard!!!

I have fond memories of visiting Yellowstone in 2011 with baby Greg, who puked just as Old Faithful erupted. Very apropos, son.

All I can think of is how, during our 1966 trip, we made fun of Dad for being such an old coot talking about going there "twenty years ago..." Of cours that was, er, damn near 50 years ago. eep!
