When I think of Yellowstone, I think of “Old Faithful”, gorgeous landscapes, and erie colored pools.
What I didn’t expect was to see things like this: tree graveyards, that have just started to come back to life. Fire rages in the park on a regular basis, though we didn’t see any.
What I like about this picture, is what you really can’t see. Right outside the park, people live their normal lives. It’s sort of a “Well, duh!” But it’s something you don’t think about.
The animals were something else I didn’t think about. I guess, I expected to see animals.
But I never thought I’d see this guy. And no, this is not in a gated park. This guy/girl was just passing through. There was a ranger near by to make sure no one got hurt – the people or the bear.
And… the front gate – you never think of that either.
