I’m grateful I was able to spend this week with my family in the beautiful Western States of Wyoming, Utah and Colorado. We flew into Colorado Springs as apposed to flying into Jackson Hole, Wyoming direct, and saved about $1200 dollars (there was 6 of us traveling). We spent most of our week in Jackson Hole where we explored the sights. We also spent one night in Utah visiting family before we drove back down to Colorado for our trip back home.

Our vacation included a ride on a tram up the mountainside to take in the scenic views from the top of the Great Titan Mountains. We enjoyed a western Chuck wagon style dinner show as we were educated about the olden day cattle drives and we listened to the harmonic talents of several cowboys as they sang old western songs. We explored Yellowstone National Park where we saw and photographed many animals in their natural surroundings; buffalo, wolves, moose, elk, a bald eagle and a bobcat.

We ended our trip in the old western town of Cripple Creek, Colorado where were able to tour a mine, enjoy local cuisine and do a little gambling. The last night of the trip we took an hour or two of adult time and spent it in front of the slot machines.

All and all we had a wonderful trip and we were able to connect again as a family before schedules shuffle us into many different directs. Whether you’re able to vacation outside of your state or not, treat your family to some time together and soak in this precious time as often as possible!
