~Adventure Tour Express~And a Month of Thanksgiving~

“A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints” ~Wilfred Peterson

The Bear Tooth Mountains

I am in awe of all God creations.  And I remember as I took these pictures how I  imagined what it must have been like to be the first human to have come upon this beauty with its colors, smells, and magnificent sounds.  What fear and trembling must have occurred when they first witnessed the eruption of a geyser?  What did they think when they saw the earth boil in those bubbling cauldrons?

As Mark Twain says of his travels,

"We had mighty good weather as a general 
thing, and nothing ever happened to us at all."

And Theodore Roosevelt said this, 

"There can be nothing in the world more beautiful than the Yosemite, the groves of the giant sequoias and redwoods, the Canyon of the Colorado, the Canyon of the Yellowstone, the Three Tetons; and our people should see to it that they are preserved for their children and their children's children forever, with their majestic beauty all unmarred."

Oh!  I must go back!!!

Thanks be to God!
