    'Nice photos, rattler. Especially of the wildlife. On my first trip Yellowstone wasn't what I expected it to be - but it was every bit as awesome.

    done a fair bit of hiking in Glacier, been there a number of times, this was my first trip down to Yellowstone which is kinda funny cause Yellowstone is a fair bit closer than Glacier to me....
