day one ...

 

I've just finished up breezing through Grand Teton National Park, and now I'm breezing through a little of Yellowstone.  I don't plan to stop at all.  The main reason for my rush is to get a motel room in West Yellowstone.  Why so early in the day?  Because it's Saturday, and I want to hang out at a bar and watch my alma mater play some ball tonight!

 

Landscape just up from the south entrance.  This is a part of the park I didn't cover last year.

 

My beloved bison!  Lounging in a geyser field.

 

Closer shot on film with my telephoto lens.

 

More from film with the telephoto.

 

Wide shot on film.

 

Film, telephoto: a big girl wandering back to the herd.

 

More on film.

 

Another close-up on film.

 

Telephoto film shot: a big elk hanging out near an off-road parking area.

 

Heading towards the west entrance, I get stuck in a traffic jam induced by a bison herd standing around on the road.  My wait is under an hour.  I'll talk to some folks tonight who were held up by these bison for over three hours.
