I've just returned from a trip to Yellowstone to teach a class for the Yellowstone Forever Institute. My co-teacher was Gardiner-area teacher, writer and poet Ilona Popper--she led the writing component of the workshop and I led the watercolor painting. The photo here shows the students writing at Obsidian Creek. We took turns writing and painting; as students shared their writing my experience of Yellowstone was very much deepened. I've taught several times there and have never gotten such insight before.
