Uncle Tom's Trail


Uncle Tom's Trail
Lower Falls
Yellowstone National Park 
Over 300 steps down to a view of  the most beautiful waterfall
I have ever seen. 




Y'all might have guessed by now that Yellowstone is my favorite national park- 
These pics were taken four years ago when I was a two pack a day smoker (3 yrs smoke-free, whoo-hoo!) and 70 pounds heavier. 
That top photo is me, trying to make it back up the stairs without having a heart attack.
(photo taken by dh who is always leaving me in his dust!) 
I can't wait to go back and try those stairs again.

  39. Fantastic photos but, no way would I be able to walk that trail. I have such a reaction to heights and seeing light below my feet would have me in a panic.
