One day, Koobert, and his big sister Kootie found themselves exploring one of the most majestic recreation areas in the United States – Yellowstone National Park. Nestled high in the Rocky Mountains, they were surrounded by breathtaking views of high vistas, shimmering pools, deep and rugged canyons, and other signs of God’s splendor.
