This year we decided we really needed a relaxing getaway over Halloween weekend.
With babysitting and work and school and work and this & that… a relaxing cabin weekend was exactly what we needed.
Late Friday night we drove up to our friends cabin in Driggs, Idaho with Sam & Emily. It was seriously SO beautiful up there in Idaho!
On Saturday we pretty much just relaxed, watched football, took naps, went into Jackson Hole to eat some BBQ, nap some more, eat shakes and then eat some more.
For dinner we went to a hamburger joint in Driggs and started chatting about Yellowstone. I took out my phone, mapped it, saw it was only an hour and a half away, and we all decided we HAD to go the next day!
Because why not, right?
I think the last time I went to Yellowstone was when I was 3 years old. I obviously don’t remember a thing so I was so excited to go.
On our way there we stopped at Mesa Falls which was definitely a sight to see! You could walk on these bridges RIGHT next to the waterfalls.
From the second we entered into the Yellowstone National Park I was like a giddy school girl. Everything was seriously unbelievable.
After driving into the park for only probably 4 miles we looked to our right and saw ~200 buffalos just relaxing by the river bend!!
In all honesty, I think Old Faithful was probably the least appealing thing to me in the entire park. After it went off at 1:12 pm I looked over at Will and went, “That was it?” haha!
The other geysers all around the park were so much neater to me.
I loved walking around to see them up close bubbling and the prettiest blue hues. Did you know that HALF of the worlds geysers are all within Yellowstone? Pretty remarkable.
Just a super casual buffalo walking next to our car.
And then this was our traffic leaving the park! Seriously unreal. I am so happy we went!
All in all it was a wonderful Halloween weekend. If you ever feel stressed I highly recommend grabbing some road trip snacks, driving far, listening to good tunes, and just relaxing. It was just the medicine we needed!
