Red Series No. 2 - 26

Red Series No. 2 - 26
Just returned from a vacation in Yellowstone and the Tetons.  Such beauty!  We saw bunches and bunches of wildlife.  Exciting to see such in a natural setting as opposed to a zoo.  We were lucky enough to see two black bears.  One bear was very close, about ten feet away and down a gully.  He was just munching away on new grass along a stream.

There were plenty of bison, elk, moose (less so), and white deer.  Old Faithful is still doing her thing. I highly recommend that if you are desiring a trip to the parks that you go this time of year.  It was not crowded at all.  Not all the roads were open in Yellowstone but we did not feel that we missed out.  I hear that 2 to 3 million people visit Yellowstone each year.  The park looks pretty great after having that many people around.  One really does not notice the visitors except at Old Faithful.  The parking lot is huge and I mean huge.

I had not been to Yellowstone since I was a kid.  It is one of those experience I had not forgotten but when we were there this time, it was like a new experience.  I am glad to be out of the car as we drove over 2000 miles.   So glad we went though.

Another nice one - I like the more subtle colours in the recent posts.
Good to hear your trip was so successful - 2000 miles sounds a nightmare of driving to me but I don't reckon to do more than 200 at a stretch! Sounds like an amazing place to see with all that wildlife and before the summer heat.
