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.
We had an awesome 6+ mile hike up through the Cascade Canyon (again bear country) in Grand Tetons NP and the views were worth it 😍 For a part of the hike, we actually hiked through snow.
Schwabacher’s Landing at Grand Tetons NP is one of the most serene places I’ve been to in the mountains. Still waters thanks to beaver dams add a magic touch.
It was a great day to spend in Lamar Valley, Yellowstone NP. With abundant wildlife to see and the day shifting between heavy snowfall to bright sunshine. Here’s one moment in transition.
We arrived here yesterday and have been off the (internet) grid since then. We woke up to a snowy morning after a nearly 10-hour sleep (I needed it)
