July 15, 2007 - The Trip West

Yellowstone National Park

Busy day - spent a lot of time visiting with bison (their idea, not ours), toured West Thumb
geyser basin, and Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.

A face only a mother bison could love.

Bubba one & Bubba two.

Bison eat a lot!

Combine a lot of people going somewhere and a lot of bison going nowhere...bison jam!
This one was about 4 miles long, fortunately going the other way!

Bull in standoff with Winnebago! 30 minutes while we crept by and still going after
we passed - may still be going on!

This is probably what this area looked like to the Nez Perce Indians.

Grizzly bear sow and cub - a long way off - the brown
smudge on the right is the cub - cute, ain't it??!!

I looked it up but forgot what it is - sorry.

Black Pool at West Thumb.

Another dark bubbler.

Fisherman's Geyser - the story is that fisherman would hook a trout then
paddle over to the geyser and plop the fish in while still on the hook - instant fish dinner!

Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.

Lower Falls on the Yellowstone River.

Upper Falls on the Yellowstone River.


Yellowstone Lake Zen.
