Hayden Valley, Yellowstone National Park
8" X 8"
After the total eclipse we decided to camp at Teton National Park
and Yellowstone. Fortunately for us there wasn't much smoke in either place.
We saw buffalo swim across the Yellowstone River, huge bull elk, lots of cute squirrels,
cranes, cute birds, lots and lots of loons but no Grizzlies - which is a relief!
Yellowstone canyon was spectacular. Even though it was late August the falls were raging
which was was a pleasant surprise. We met the nicest people from all over the world.
There was no internet which can be a curse and a blessing at the same time.
Teton and Yellowstone are only 40 miles from each other in theory you could drive from one to the other
but the road construction in Yellowstone made that an ugly option.
Jackson lake and Yellowstone lake are beautiful beyond words. I doubt I'll try to paint that stupendous scenery you'll
just have to take my word about the beauty. Turn out Teton and Yellowstone are not that
far from my house in Colorado. We plan to spend more time exploring those parks in the future.
Thanks for waiting - MB
