After our long exciting day, Gerry and I felt like we needed more. There is just so much to see, and Yellowstone is enormous. It's over 3,000 square miles! So we spur of the moment decided to extend our trip to go back a second day. The second day was overall really fun, but I had some weird wardrobe malfunctions. Windy day+skirt= no go. I also made some poor footwear decisions, so I was kind of crabby for part of the day. We still had a great time, and one of the most serious laughing attacks of the whole trip. Very photo-heavy post ahead, and beware there's a gross picture of my Yellowstone "injury" at the end. =)
Check out the Elk Party.
So after whining excessively about my shoes giving me blisters, I put flip-flops on and we headed to look at the petrified tree. On the way I stubbed my toe resulting in the most intensely chipped toenail of all day? Naturally I took a picture, wanna see? It was pretty intense, and it made Gerry and I die laughing. We've determined no one has weirder problems than me.
I suppose you can also note the blister. Sorry, I know most bloggers don't show off their nasty feet, but I'm shameless and I thought it was grossly amazing although it may be TMI.
the petrified tree.
I thought wearing a second skirt might help the windy-blowing problem. It didn't; just made me look silly. I wish I could take it off in this picture, but I still like it.
