Leaning out to look at me

A silence as deep as the trees

“It was as if the sun had been stolen. Only thin ribbons of light seeped down through the green and milky air, air syrupy with the scent of pine, huckleberry, and juniper. Hovering over everything was a silence as deep as the trees were tall.” ~ Avi.

The Lake Hotel

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread. ~ John Muir

Yellowstone became our first National Park in March of 1872. The Lake Hotel was built in 1891, redesigned and enlarged in 1903, and is the oldest operating hotel in the park.
