Yellowstone: Road Trip 2016


Moonrise over West Yellowstone






Yellowstone Lake






Old Faithful




Large Elk herd










This was the fourth time I had been to Yellowstone, each experience has been different. Strangely, in my mind, I did not have big expectations for Yellowstone. This time, my parents and I managed to make an entire day out of it. I know, a day is barely skimming the surface the place. The park brochure says that if you drive all of the roads in the park, you are basically seeing 1% of the place. Still, I was blown away by Yellowstone this time. The sheer size of the place and the variety of landscapes really hit me this time around. The last time I had seen Yellowstone canyon was a cold dreary overcast day when I was 19. This time, I thought it may have been one of the most stunning sights I have ever seen. Perhaps due to the bright sun, the colors were outstanding. My photos are saturated for the most part, but they simply don't do justice to actually being there...

  1. Did you ever stop to ponder that you were sitting on top of one of the biggest volcanoes on the planet...due to erupt at any time?
