This weekend Maria's Postcards for the Weekend link-up theme is "Museum/University." Those of us who collect postcards are to dig through our collection and find some cards to share that match the theme. Those of you who have followed us for a while will know that a large part of our postcard collection is related to Yellowstone National Park. So, sure enough, we found a card showing the Museum at Mammoth Hot Springs. Thanks to Maria for hosting the link-up.

Hello John, excellent connection with the word resolute and the tree by the ocean. Thank you for sharing this photo from your trip. And of course, thank you for sharing the postcard of the Mammoth Hot Springs museum. I'm very curious of what to find inside! Have a nice week ahead.ReplyDelete

Hello, I love the view of the tree and the boats. The sky captures are beautiful. Mammoth Hot Spring was one of my favorite places in Yellowstone. We stayed in a park cabin nearby. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead.ReplyDelete

Oh how we love the Oregon coast and other parts as well on our many visits to my cousin in Portland. And what a great Admiral and fighting carrier name after him. Let us pray she has seen her last battles in the far Pacific. As Mammoth Hot Springs we camped there many time and in our "Golden Years" stayed in the big hotel. I have some great stories about bison, elk and brown bears I encounterrf on the nearby Lamar River. Perhaps I put them on my blog sometime...:)ReplyDelete
