Recently, Lynn and I travelled to Ashland (well, June...), where we chronicled restaurants, theater, hotels, breweries and bars, a little of the great outdoors and art...generally having a great time. Included in our visit was a breakfast at fusion-y, flavorful Dragonfly Cafe, where one of the highlights was the sweet and saviry Coconut French Toast. Here in this video though, the manager and bartender made us their signature cocktail, a jalapeño-blueberry margarita, and it was savory! Cheers!
The beauty I've been seeking here in Yellowstone the last couple of weeks has been partially quenched, but I'm always felt wanting more, as so many secrets await. With only 1 more week here, and the snow having started, we'll be packing in any and all photos and sights we can. We've managed to hit a lot of the major geysers for eruptions, see enormous amounts of wildlife and enjoy serenity by sparkling rivers and broad valleys..
Over 17 years ago I began a journey, one that helps define me today. I started working in the National Parks, in the Resort side of things. The path that I followed led me to Grand Teton National Park in the summer of 1995 (and again in 1996), part of a Earhly paradise that includes Jackson Hole, the striking Tetons and the large, diverse and unique Yellowstone.
While the Tetons possessed a striking visual to Rocky Mountain splendor, Yellowstone allured me with a colorful magic that I have yet to see anywhere else. Nothing can match wonder of seeing the famous geyser basins for the first time and seeing the views across the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone; exploring a place that you realize shows off every natural wonder found somewhere in the park.
So here I come back, after many National Parks and National treasures and travels, to dive deep into this Park, re-discovering the familiar, exploring the unseen, and chronicling everything along the way, following with te Tetons and Jackson Hole along the way.
So fly away with me and discover the magic of this place, as I accumulate pictures, video and stories of the land, people, art, food and beverage, and anything else I could obsess about knowing, seeing and discovering of the beauty around us..
