Giving Thanks for Yellowstone

“For each new morning with its life. For rest and shelter of the night, for health and food, for love of friends, for everything thy goodness sends.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yellowstone was set aside because of the significance of its natural features. More free-roaming wildlife than anywhere else in the lower 48 states. More geothermal features than anywhere else in the world. But it’s more than the quantity or quality of these features. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Adopt the pace of nature. Her secret is patience.” Yellowstone is a celebration of nature, and of patience. Whether it’s the carving of the Grand Canyon, the eruption intervals of a geyser, the sight of a grizzly in the wild, or the anticipated first bloom of spring, all these great gifts of nature are worth waiting for. And deserve our thanks.
