More from Yellowstone

Here are some more pictures from Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons: The Deluge


Swan Lake the day we arrived, and the last time we saw blue sky.
                                                                

The bigger cub is heading over to wrestle with the other, as in “lie on top of and bite”.


This is the largest bear print I have ever seen.  Further down the trail, I saw scat to match.  It was pouring torrentially and, some would say thankfully, I do not have a picture to show you.

    The sky you got to see was stunning, though. I love that first shot. I can’t imagine a place with that much wildlife right out in the open. What a place!

    Thanks, Sandy. It’s true about Yellowstone – what a place! One of the shots that got away is of a long straight road descending out of Yellowstone. I thought about taking a picture called “Long, Slow Descent into Reality”, but by the time I thought of it, the road began to curve.

  3. Beautiful Monica, great panoramics of Yellowstone
    Must be potential for great pics at every turn and angle

      That’s true, Ian. There are open vistas and then the dense lodgepole forests – many of which were burned in the fire of ’88 and are now growing back.

    What a wonderful place, Monica – the mountains are so majestic. Love that first shot and the Lake hotel looks like a wonderfully cosy respite from the icy cold outside.
    PS – I haven’t forgotten the poetry notes – just been a rather crazy few weeks here, so will get around to it soon.

    Hello Bluebee, I’d love to see your notes whenever you get to it. People ask whether we camp in Yellowstone, but the campgrounds are either not open or buried in snow when we go. Besides, that hot shower and yummy dinner at Lake are a looked-for reward.
