My family decided to make a vacation out of the long trip to pick me up from BYU-Idaho at the end of the semester last week. We drove all around Yellowstone National Park on Friday. It was amazing to see raw nature! Here's some pictures I took of our drive around the park!

Family group shot

While driving around the Lower and Upper loops through Wyoming and Montana, we were able to see different wild-life.

Animals spotted: Buffalo, Caribou, Squirrels/Chipmunks, Moose, Tourists, Foxes, Deer, Geese, a Black Bear, and even an Alex!

A rare sighting of an 'Alex' - very vicious
This buffalo was walking down the middle of the road, causing traffic

As we ventured out of the car to view the natural wonders, we all got nice pink sunburns! The sights were worth it. We had a good time driving around for NINE hours because of a wrong turn or two, and were happy to get back to our beds at the end of the night.

Last weeks

It's finals week! This semester has been a lot of ups and downs. Isabel and I were thinking about it yesterday and we have made a lot of new friends who take us to do outdoorsy things. We have gone camping twice, we hiked all over, have gone on at least 5 different river trips, and just got out of the house a lot more this semester. When it's not snowing outside there's so many things to do! Now as we pack up our room to move back home for fall, we realize how much we are going to miss it! Our Spotify jam sessions, running at the gym, combined dinners, Instagram fame, wandering aimlessly around Rexburg, mental breakdowns, trying to figure out life, cats, lipstick colors, and everything else. Spring semester was Fergalicious.
