Tetons

Words alone cannot describe the beauty of the Tetons. I couldn’t stop taking pictures. But here are some of the good ones I took.

Traffic in Yellowstone

Traffic in Yellowstone is always interesting. Not the same anywhere else.

Fire At Yellowstone

Weird to see smoke when I approached the gate. Was there a small fire in Yellowstone?

Drive To Yellowstone

The drive from Cody to Yellowstone is always beautiful. Here are some of the rock formations you can see on the way.

Mammoth Hot Springs

I remember being here as a kid and seeing so much steaming water and bubbling mud around. Now it is mostly dried. I just found out a recent small earthquake shifted the spring vent and that’s the reason for it being dried. But there are still amazing spots to take pics!

Grand Prismatic Spring

This is the Grand Prismatic Spring located at the Midway Geyser Basin. It is the largest hot spring in Yellowstone. Walking by it was amazing because of the heat coming from it. My glasses fogged as I walked by in the 80 degree weather we had today. This spring and others surrounding it dumps its water into the Firehole River. Pretty impressive!!!

Old Faithful

Ah! Old Faithful is once again faithful in erupting its amazingly hot water! The one picture is the geyser at rest. The next is one of the warning eruptions before the big one. And of course, Old Faithful at it’s peak eruption. Pretty impressive when you compare it to the tree next to it. And this is the crowd that had already gathered 30 minutes before the predicted time of eruption.

Fishing Bridge

People use to catch cutthroat here. But now it’s been banned. This is a great spawning area for them. There was nothing here today but the view from the bridge is gorgeous!

Yellowstone Lake

This is one of the most beautiful lakes ever. It’s so calm and the water is crystal clear. I could spend hours skipping rocks here. I got 8-9 skips!!!
