We went to the cabin for a get away for Labor Day Weekend and decided to run into the park Thursday and beat the rush weekend rush.  Here’s a couple of pics from the two trips into the park (We went back in on Monday).  Janis and I hiked down to the brink of the lower canyon falls on Monday and that’s one of the pics here.  The other is a panorama taken on the north loop between Tower Falls and the Mammoth Hot Spring.  There are still scars visible from the big fire almost 30 years later.

We went back on Labor Day and there was so much smoke I don’t think any of the pics will turn out well.  The forest fires are unbelievable this year.

Why is it that when I’m at the cabin the moose are across the river and when anyone else is there they come knock on the door.  Trust me my little Canon is nothing to be afraid of.  That said here’s a couple of wildlife photos.

Seems like when we go into Yellowstone there’s always a big slow down usually for Bison or Elk or Deer.  This year both Elk and Bison.  Interesting story about a car full in foreigners

and the Bison, but will leave that for another time.  We actually pulled over to go check out the Elk because there were three moms and four baby’s.  You don’t see the baby’s everyday.  They were all lounging in the grass, but moms definitely at attention.

Twice into Yellowstone is unusual, but when you have a lifetime pass…why not?  I really wanted to get over to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone again.  We found a really awesome picture of Janis and Chris there taken in about 1980 and I just wanted to go again.  Janis and I had a great time and saw some wild life, found parking easily everywhere we went and we had awesome angry sky and it all worked out to a nearly perfect day.  I’ve got shots of the Upper and Lower Falls on the Yellowstone River and then on the way back we did one of those one way side trips and visited the Virginia Cascade on Gibbons River.
