For me, Yellowstone is the most magical of all the National Parks. Over the past thirty years, I have returned to visit this park 17 times, and it always is spectacular to see it again. I have seen Yellowstone in it’s splendor, burnt to the ground and then, watched as it rejuvenated itself. After the last big fires, our painting group was the only visitors allowed in the park. We walked along the board walks alone. I have seen it filled with thousands of visitors, so many that moving in the park became impossible and unbearable.
But, at the lodge, time never changes. When I am here, I feel like I return to an earlier time when artists like Thomas Moran painted its geysers and vistas, and visitors arrived by horse and buggy. Even today, Moran’s paintings grace the White House walls, reminding visitors of the historical legacy that artists and naturalists have left for all Americans to enjoy for generations to come. When I am in Yellowstone, I find myself transported back into the early days and history of the park, and have the sense that I am pleasantly lost, “Somewhere in Time.”
