Yellowstone National Park

       I continued my drive into Yellowstone National Park and Wyoming which is a new state for me.  It is hard to imagine the acres and acres that were burned by the fires in Yellowstone until you see it.  Many areas have started to recover but the evidence is still everywhere.

Along the drive, there were cars stopped everywhere alongside of the road.  Of course, I had to pull over to see what everyone was stopped to see.  At first I thought this was a female moose but I have changed my mind - maybe elk.  Sorry Janet - I did my best:)

Next on my list was to see Old Faithful and the Visitor Center.  I really timed my visit well and only had to wait about 10 minutes to see.  It was so neat.  Lots and lots of tourists were there!

After this, I drove by some more geysers and out the north entrance of the park to Bozeman, MT.  Beautiful drive and reminded me of the movie "A River Runs Through It".  There were lots of people fly fishing (in the rain).

Another great day!!

The masses.

Old Faithful

OMG you are covering some ground in a hurry, are you stopping to sleep at night? It seems like Mt. Ranier in the morning, and Yellowstone in the afternoon.
Your pictures look fabulous. Couldnt' you get the moose (meese if it was a girl?) to turn around? Just kidding!
