Hogmanay

I’ve been told that in Scotland people celebrate Hogmanay more than Christmas and that there will be lots of fireworks at midnight. I’m going to […]

Slush Puppy River

Today we had a lot of driving to do.  There was lots to look at but I went on my iPad a lot too.  It took 7 hours and we didn’t leave until late so we could go for a swim in the pool first. On our way we saw a really red river and […]

Chocolate Moose!

Today we went to explore the Tetons. We took a road through the woods and saw a bear and a moose.  It was amazing! We went to Jenny Lake but we couldn’t get a canoe because the water is still too cold so we went on a boat trip.  I made a new friend on […]

Yellowstone to Tetons

Today we headed off through Yellowstone and out of the south entrance. We stopped at Grand Prismatic Spring as we haven’t seen that yet. It was amazing. There were lots of colours, reds, oranges, browns, blues and lots of steam. The colours are made from different coloured bacteria called thermophiles. You are not allowed to throw […]
