The 3 Amigos were minus 1 on this Pioneer Holiday trip to Yellowstone
 Cody and Papa camped (in the tent on the ground which is probably why the 3rd Amigo didn't join them, but now wishes he had...)  at the Bates Lodge in Driggs, Idaho and then made some day trips to visit relatives.   This is Papa's Uncle Cloyd Bates, and Uncle Derold and Aunt Nyla Bates who were staying in the Bates'Lodge.
Cody and Papa LOVE to visit the airplane museums!

Never thought I'd see our Grandson standing at the mouth of Hell!           (He's actually standing at the beginning of the Hell's Half Acre Trail.)
Here's Cody with his GGreat Uncle Dick Harvey at the Flight Museum. (Uncle Dick's wife is Aunt JoAnne Bevan Harvey, and sister to Papa's Dad, J Bert Bevan.  Cody and Papa stopped at their home for a personal visit to express their love to Uncle Dick and Aunt JoAnne's family who are enduring great heartache over their grandson, Jason Allgood, who has been missing since Jun 17th from a fishing trip in Alaska.

Cody and the ever faithful Old Faithful!
Papa as Old Faithful is dying down... and some of their photos of the ever-beautiful Yellowstone, with the Grand Canyon, more falls, hot pools, boiling mud pots and even pretty, smelly sulfuric-steam!

Cody and Papa actually
had a great buffalo experience
with the buffalo actually walking and rubbing his fur alongside the passenger side of the car (Cody's side!), but sadly not one of those shots out the car window turned out to exhibit proof!
Here's amazing views of the Teton Peaks;

WHAT A VIEW!!   Have to admit, this shot looks like Heaven and Earth have merged!!

OUR FAMILY INSPIRATIONAL FOCUS is from chapter 7 of the Book of Moses wherein:

----Enoch teaches, leads the people, moves mountains;
—The City of Zion is established;
—Enoch foresees the coming of the Son of Man, his atoning sacrifice, and the resurrection of the saints;
—He foresees the restoration, the gathering, the Second Coming, and the return of Zion.

 Moses 7:2-4

"2 And from that time forth Enoch began to prophesy, saying unto the people, that: As I was journeying, and stood upon the place Mahujah, and cried unto the Lord, there came a voice out of heaven, saying—Turn ye, and get ye upon the mount Simeon.

3 And it came to pass that I turned and went up on the mount; and as I stood upon the mount, I beheld the heavens open, and I was clothed upon with glory;

4 And I saw the Lord; and he stood before my face, and he talked with me, even as a man talketh one with another, face to face; and he said unto me: Look, and I will show unto thee the world for the space of many generations."
