I have to combine days four and five in one post because day four was a rain out and the only thing we did was go see a IMAX movie about Yellowstone, which was awesome, and had lunch out. After that we swam at the indoor pool for the hotel and vegged out the rest of the day. Was good to have a day of relaxation.

But day five was so new and fun, at least the first part…

We decided to head to Mammoth Hot Springs and I am so glad we did We left first thing in the morning and it was rather spooky driving up a mountain with fog everywhere. It was scary because you couldn’t see where you were going but good it covered just how high up we were. We drove through some beautiful areas! After making it to Mammoth we explored the small town, stopped by the visitors center and that walked the loop and saw beautiful pools and terraces.

My youngest pooped out halfway up the trail so I took her back down for a snack at the car while my husband kept going with Ashton. When they finally came back down we stopped for snacks in the Terrace Grill before doing some shopping and then heading out, next stop unknown.

Next stop was Tower Falls, and let me tell you the roads PETRIFIED me! I literally have callouses on both my hands from gripping the steering wheel so hard. Thankfully no one was directly behind me so I was able to go at my own pace. While it was beautiful, I do not think I will be attempting that part of the loop anytime soon. It was scary beautiful as I tell my husband.

We had such an absolutely amazing trip, to an amazing place and made memories. We ran out of Twizzlers to hand out after day 2 and we are in so many peoples videos and pictures with the Twizzlers van. When I checked out of my hotel this morning the lady at the front desk told me that I had people stopping to pose for pictures with their families with the van. It definitely gained a lot of exposure!

Thank you Twizzlers for choosing my family as a Landmark Summer Traveling Family. It was the trip of a lifetime! We are sad to leave but we know we will be back!

Twizzlers has chosen my family as one of their Traveling Families and are covering food, gas, and lodging as well as providing a car for the trip. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

    Hey Jennifer. The scenery there looks absolutely beautiful. I’ll make sure to visit Yellowstone next time I’m in the neighborhood, though unfortunately that won’t be anytime soon. :<
