In 1983 on our first vacation (other than our honeymoon) we went West to Yellowstone National Park.  We took the trip in our 1974 Chevy Blazer, no A/C, no cruise control, and no real experience in traveling across the nation.  Our cameras at that point in time were a Canon TX and a Canon AE1 Program, both 35mm SLR's.  Maybe some day I'll dig up the negatives and convert them to digital to share with you.

Yellowstone captured our hearts as one of the most beautiful places in existence and since that trip in 1983 we've been back two more times.  These pictures are from 2007, our latest trip to this great national park where there are unlimited photo opportunities.

These photos were taken with my first real digital SLR, my Canon Rebel XT and my old Tamron lenses that I had with my Canon EOS Elan.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I encountered a piece of dust on the mirror of my camera and it took me way too long to figure it out.  You'll see it in several of the photos at the top, middle.  I may be a slow learner but lesson learned on this one.
