Think I am just thinking.

Words are but thoughts made visible.

Yellowstone, then and now.

As we contemplate heading toward Yellowstone, I realize looking at some old family photo’s that our visit will be somewhat different than those of some of my ancestors. 

Travel as it was in the 1880's.
Travel as it was in the 1880’s.As can be seen, my Great Grandmother had a slightly different mode of transportation into Yellowstone to work in the houskeeping department at a park lodge.  Later, she was joined by her sister, who possing as someone older than 18, which she was not, was able to work along side her sister in what had to have been a great adventure at the time.  The Way We Where.

So, it’s getting time to start packing.  What to wear in Yellowstone?

The Way We Where.

We could dress in the same manner as what people in the 1880’s would have been dressed.   Perhaps something like this photo of us take a few years ago.  But considering we might stand out a bit, probably not a good choice, unless that was the goal.  Also, not the best hiking outfits!
