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.
