On our trip out West, I got to go back to YNP for the first time in 6 years. I shall not tell a lie, it felt like coming home.
Yes, that's a blurry grizzly. First day with a new camera, what can I say? But boy those branches look fan-tas-tic!
Mammoth Hot Springs, where I done used to work.
And the ever-present elk there.
(These photos are driving me batty. I'm still fiddling with the settings on the new camera, and am having difficulties with photo resizing. Hopefully I'll be able to make them bigger soon without them taking up half the darn screen.)
It was a good day - we had a picnic lunch in Mammoth, then turned around and looped back through Tower, the Fishing Bridge, and the East Entrance of the park.
Oh! And before I forget, we did see buffalo. Of course.
That one was a bit close for comfort, but thankfully he decided to stay where he was.
I'll do one more post of Zee Gratuitous Vacation Photos in a few days, and then it's back to regularly scheduled programming. (Insert sad noise here.)
