Hi ya all! Just got back from a quick trip to Yellowstone National Park this week and thought I'd post a few pics of some of the highlights.
One of the things (aside from the geysers) that the park is famous for its scenic veiws.
This picture doesn't begin to give you an impression of the size of the cascades...or the view.
My daughter and I had a competition going to see who would spot the most wild life. She spotted this bear first.
She also saw a couple coyotes just after we entered the park but I only caught a glimpse of the second one. We did see a third one but only got a very grainy pic of it. We also saw two wolves at a pretty good distance.
We both saw this guy at the same time. He was hard to miss as he was standing on the left shoulder of the road causing a traffic jam as every body stopped to take pictures. I would never be so inconsiderate as to stop to take pictures and block traffic of course. Fortunately, my wife was driving.
She also spotted about 6 of these cut throat trout. They're about 16"/40.6cm long
I did manage to spot this guy first.
He joined his mom who was a short distance away.
