yellowstone....

ok .... 
raise your hand if you have been to yellowstone .... 

no...haven't been? ok....take it from me ... you HAVE to go ...... it is the most astonishing place!

yes....wait! yes? you've been to yellowstone before? and you didn't tell me? why not? you should be telling everyone that they have to go .... soon .... now .... right away ..... it is SUCH an amazing spot ...unlike any other in the whole world, i'll be so bold to say! 
i am only part way through editing my photos .... i have one memory card with 550 pics .... 500 have been combed through, cropped, sharpened, brightened ..... fifty to go ....
another card has 220 ... loaded on my 'puter but not looked at with a discerning, deleting eye yet ..... 
girl.beck.artist has about 300 on her memory card ... i loaded them to my computer since i took a good many of them .... 
boy.beck.artist has about 400 on his memory card .... i'll get to them eventually ..... 
little.e.beck.artist used a 27 pic disposable camera...
i had a water proof camera with 27 pics ....for the white water rafting day .....
and i took a few pics with my iphone!!!

ah! photos in excess .... in 20 years they will be my proof, my reminder, my souvenirs of a most astonishing vacation ..... and thankfully the nine loads of laundry yesterday and the four so far today....will be selective memoried right on out of my life! ..... 

so .... what's the best vacation you ever went on? 
what's your best plan for this summer?

My hand is up.
And I have many many times told people to go west!
You are making me miss MT & WY!
I think Jim really misses it -- he has gone the last 5 years --- sadly not this summer.
I so enjoy travelling the USA - the diverse landscape is wonderful to experience

you sound nearly as bad as me in regards to taking TONS of pictures - I think it's awesome and can't wait to see more ... I've always wanted to go to Yellowstone and you just make me want to do it more! :)

best vacation: visiting my Omi the summer I was 12.

best plans for this summer: making more stuff. :)
