Norris Geyser Basin in Yellowstone, Wyoming

More photos from our Yellowstone travels! We spent the bulk of our walking around the Norris Geyser Basin, which is known as the hottest and most changeable thermal area in Yellowstone.
This is the location of the world’s tallest active geyser, colorful hot springs, and microscopic life in one of the most extreme environments on earth. It was a fun walk, if a little tedious with a toddler and baby in tow. (Gotta get used this whole lugging tiny people around thing…) But even so, we were able to trek along both the Porcelain Basin and Back Basin. The hike offered a myriad of rainbow colors, hissing steam, and pungent odors.. tons of fun! <3

    I love the shot of you & both the girls! Whenever you get a pic of Tessa walking by herself, she looks so much older than she is. Great experiences for you all.

    Wow Gingi… the colors here are amazing… I am in awe of you going on this hike with two small children, I found one daunting to go with when I did any kind of hikes… Some really amazing pictures here xox

    Love the pictures of your sweet family and exciting hike. Nice baby carrier – isn’t it the sweetest thing to have them close <3 I use a carrier too and at home I often use a ring sling. That way you get at least one hand free. Thyme is growing fast and Tessa is precious as always. Awwwww, I can't stop smiling 🙂

      Seriously wouldn’t be able to do ANYTHING without my baby carrier, haha…

    I am just so in love with all of these photos. Woman always have the strength to handle everything and you are carrying those babies like a pro. And this seems like such an interesting place to explore. I love everything about this post.

    Your pictures make me so homesick for Yellowstone, even though I’ve never lived there! I think I’ve just wished I lived there.

  • 27 August, 2015 at 11:18 pm

    Amazing photo’s. Love that turquiose water. But how do you vacation with 2 young girls like that? Mind blowing. I can’t even make it to Kmart.
