  4. Peggy worked at Yellowstone in the lodge as a waitress while she was in college, Andrew. I’ve been there several times. Always beautiful. And it is amazing how fast it recovered from the devastating fire. –Curt

      • She was there temporarily but worked at a less formal restaurant most of her time there. Overcrowding at the more popular national parks such a Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and Yosemite is becoming overcrowded like it is at popular European destinations, Andrew. It is a real issue. Maybe we should be glad for all of the traveling we did earlier. I can still put on a backpack and escape most of the crowds. 🙂

  5. Interesting . . . the viewing area visible on the left side of the waterfall photo must have been removed as it doesn’t show up in any of my photos. My first visit there was in 2002, but most of the access to the canyon was closed off as they were redoing stuff. It wasn’t until my 2015 trip that I got a good view of the canyon and the waterfal.
