Stay at least 25 yards away from a bison, they told us. I guess the bison that sauntered past our car didn’t get that memo.
While driving back from Lamar Valley in Yellowstone, we spotted this bear near the roadside. Initially we thought it was a grizzly but it may be a brown black bear.
We spied this little fella enjoying his dinner while floating down the Snake River at the foothills of the Grand Tetons.
Most national parks are proud to be called heaven on earth but I think Yellowstone is fine with some of the early explorers thinking of it as hell on earth.
The occasional cascades on the Yellowstone river were a welcome sight in the otherwise silent but fast moving water. We saw some Harlequin ducks near these.
