Labor Day Weekend | Yellowstone

For our Anniversary (Schaumburg's too) and Hunt & Cari's engagement, A+S treated us to a night at Yellowstone Under Canvas, just the big kids. Taking full advantage of our night sleeping near the park, we decided to spend the day in Yellowstone exploring -- we hit some of the usual spots (Old Faithful) and some not-so-known spots to avoid the crowds. A long day of driving, but when you're in the mountains time flies by as you are constantly amazed by what you are seeing. Before it hit cocktail hour, we headed to "camp" for the night to settle in. (Note: We stayed in suites and in my opinion is the only way to do it -- private bath in the tent and well spaced apart, on water, in their own area.) We got our fires going in our tents, then reconvened for cocktails + fishing before heading into West Yellowstone for dinner. Dinner was spent at Wild West Pizzeria (awesome selection, thanks to Cari) where we played pool and ate some darn tasty za. A night cap at camp and bed quickly followed. We woke early to cozy up with coffee and watch the sun rise before hitting the road. A perfect visit to a beautiful place. We think this may just have to be a new annual tradition. Wishing we were still there...
