THIS STOP: Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, U.S.A.
Whether you’re a photographer, an artist, a writer, or just someone who wants to vacation in a peaceful splendor, Yellowstone National Park is a must-see. Bring the significant other, bring the parents, bring the kids….but above all, bring yourself for picnics, camping, nature watching, hiking, swimming, rock climbing and other extreme sports. You won’t want to miss nature’s marvels, from the smallest bird to the largest lumbering buffalo.
A LITTLE HISTORY
Yellowstone National Park is located primarily in the State of Wyoming, though parts of this park extend into Montana and Idaho, spanning an area of 3,468.4 sq mi. This was the world’s first national park, designated in 1872. Native Americans have lived in that area now known as Yellowstone for greater than 11,000 years.
When I needed a western cattle ranch location for my story Lifeline Echoes, I checked out a few states, but few places captured my imagination as well as the state of Wyoming. So I created a fictional small town in the western part of the state, not too far from Yellowstone Park. Elusive Echoes, the second in that series is due out in June of this year. My current WIP is also set in that fictional small town of Orson’s Folly, Wyoming.
6 regular sized chocolate bars (Hershey bars are the classic choice, but use your favorite flat chocolate bar)
12 whole graham crackers, each split into 2-inch squares
24 large marshmallows
Roast marshmallows over the campfire, making them just as you need them for each S’more (these treats are best consumed hot or at least, warm). For each S’more place one roasted marshmallow and one small square of chocolate between two graham cracker squares. Give it all a little squeeze and take a bite! Optional ingredient – caramel wrap (the kind used for caramel apple wraps) cut to fit the graham cracker and placed between marshmallow and chocolate.
Do YOU have a variation on S’Mores?
Says photographer, J.L. Gould of Yellowstone: “The experience of going to Yellowstone, solo, for so many weeks, seeing and experiencing so much beauty has changed me forever.” For some beautiful pictures of the park, check out the Photography of J.L. Gould in Yellowstone National Park. Ms. Gould is the talented photographer who inspired descriptions of the area and the photographs in Lifeline Echoes, which is set in Western Wyoming, quite close to Yellowstone.
So here’s what I want to know about all of you: What is your ultimate vacation fantasy?
