2014 Family Summer Vacation Part 2- Hebgen Lake & Earthquake Lake

Before we went on to this trip, my husband was looking at his old map mapping out the places that we would love to explore while visiting the Yellowstone and the nearby area. He told us that he was going to take us to this lake that he had been before and it was beautiful there. The Hebgen Lake and the Earthquake Lake is where he wanted to take us. Then he went on about the history of the place and how heartbreaking it was when that night of the terror happened on the 17th of August 1959. If you have not heard of this place before or doesn't know the history of the place, here is a little bit of an information from Wikipedia

"A family that works together like the people in Babel before the great divide. There is almost nothing they cannot achieve if they have made up minds and work as part of a team".

The drive by the lake was absolutely beautiful! And it was one of the trips that I enjoyed so much and are very thankful for the chance that I got to see it in person. Gosh! I just can't get over how beautiful this place is and if given the chance, sure, I would love to live here. Even though it rains a lot and it gets much colder in the winter. 

In this post, I have included a video of our exploration around the Hebgen Lake and Earthquake Lake and I hope you enjoy. If you have never been to this area, it is a must see place. Someday though, I would like to come back here and camp at one of their campsites. Stunning views all around you. It is a perfect place to wind and unwind and rejuvenate your spirit. How can you not relax in a place like this. And not to mention you get to learn the history of the place, which makes you appreciate life even more. Life is Short. Life is Precious. Life is Fragile. Enjoy LIFE while you still can! And be thankful for every day that you wake up alive and well. Have a great one!

Quake Lake- You can't tell by the photo, but when you see it in person, it is quite eerie. You will see a lot of these dead trees in the lake.

Ops! Excuse me. I thought it was the skunk.
