A Few Days in the Park (August 2016)

Greetings all,

Just returned from a few days in Yellowstone. As many of you know I find spending time in Yellowstone National Park totally revitalizing, no matter the weather, number of visitors or road conditions. But the past few days the park also experienced numerous fires; one fire “Buffalo Plateau” burned just a few miles to the northwest of where I stayed (Roosevelt Lodge near Tower Junction). Added to the smoke of the fires the weather was generally overcast and windy … not the best conditions for taking photographs. And, added to that, the wolves appeared absent in the Lamar Valley – though it seems there were numerous wolf sightings in the Hayden Valley. Yet, the park continues to surprise and satisfy. Below are a few photos.1.1DXb4066BuffaloYNPAug'16(7.5x5,300cpyrt)Buffalo (American Bison), Northern Range – Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
