After watching Old Faithful go off, we went and had lunch at the beautiful Old Faithful Inn - just walking inside makes your jaw drop. If you love old rustic charm, it's definitely a must see.
While we were there, my husband asked our server where we should explore next (after all, the locals always know where to go, right?) He told us about a hot spring that was making strange sounds and the ground would tremble every few minutes. It sounded exciting so we went...and he was right! It was the strangest thing. It seriously sounded like there was a crew of construction workers below us.
What amazed me though was the beauty of these natural hot springs. Puffs of steam were everywhere...and the water inside these openings were crystal clear. It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. It was definitely worth the sun burn that I received on the top of my head. Guess who went and bought herself a hat after this adventure? This girl. Ha!

On our way out to Yellowstone, we stopped for two nights in North Dakota and camped at Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea how beautiful North Dakota would be and I was completely blown away. I also had no idea that the Badlands extended that far north - I just thought that was a South Dakota thing. Ha!
While we were exploring TRNP, we met a woman that was traveling alone. My husband started chatting with her and we learned that she was on a journey...a journey that she started with her husband many years ago to visit all the National Parks - and TRNP was the last on their list. Sadly, her husband had passed before they could finish the journey together. The way her face lit up when she talked about him I knew he was there in spirit, standing by her side as she looked out at the landscape. It was so special to see and I just wanted to give her a big hug. She was so brave and strong to finish their journey alone. It was very inspiring.
Do you have a travel bucket list? What's next on your journey?
Happy Friday, friends!! #travelwithfilm#theodorerooseveltnationalpark
Pamir, Tajikistan. It is part of highlight in my journey. Last few days when I heard there was a terrorist attack and some cyclist were killed. It is really sad to hear that's happen, couldn't imagine how and why. Hope this never stop cyclist visit such a astonish place and people there. I spend nearly one month on this route, most of the time people treat me like part of their family member. Wish that we really can live as a big family, we love and we care.
