Yellowstone 2009

    We just returned from a wonderful week in Yellowstone National Park.  We only wish we would have  had many more weeks to stick around.  A word of advise is the park does start to shut down mid September.  But what a great time of year to enjoy the nature of what is Yellowstone. 

    What a thrill to see Bull Elk locking horns while fighting for the right of the herd next to a mountain stream, glittering into the warm haze of the morning sun.  Or, perhaps the site of a black bear turning over rocks to gain access to the moths hiding beneath.  Maybe it was the site of over 400 Buffalo grazing in the golden fall colored grass, leading down to the blue of the Yellowstone River below.  Perhaps it was the a family of three Otters gliding down the rapids only to turn around and climb back up the rocks in what appeared to be nothing more than a trip to the local amusement park.  Then again, I think the sight of a Ospry swooping out of the sky to snatch a trout out of the stream, while hordes of fishermen could only stand hip deep in the water staring in envy.

Any single item of those listed above is reason alone to take the trip to Yellowstone.  But, I haven’t even gotten around to taking about the thermal features.

Favorite Places to go.

  Well this year we have narrowed the search down to either Estes park, Yellowstone, or Glacier National Park.  Right now Yellowstone is the favorite and in the far lead of places to go see (again).  I think perhaps a couple new picutes will be in order.  Thanks to the digital age, now more changing film every 12, 24, or so pictures.  Being able to take a few hundred between memory card changes is really a great advantage.  So, with a five or six memory cards in hand, I should be able to hold almost everything I want to take a picture of.

     Each day brings us one more day closer to getting away.  Not that we are looking forward to it or anything.

That reminds me, I need to start charging batteries.
