YELLOWSTONE 2

This beautiful falls is called Lower Falls.     Not a very special name for such an incredible place.    It is in an area of Yellowstone called the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River.



You get a much better perspective of the size of the falls in this photo.     The full grown trees look like blades of grass.    Every second an average of 37,417 gallons of water plunge over these falls.     Yes, every second!       The water then plunges 308 feet to the river below.





The colors of rocks in this canyon are beautiful.          The area is 20 miles long and is more than 1,000 feet deep.  












Yes, we have animal pictures again.    




I seem to have caught the buffalo during their potty break!



The rain has been threatening all day.      We stopped for lunch along this lakefront and we could see the rain approaching.







Our final stop of the day was Old Faithful.      As you can see, by this time is is very overcast and raining.     Not the best atmosphere for a good photo, but I tried.








Okay, I cheated and stayed inside out of the rain.      We got there early and I secured a spot right against the glass.      Worked for me..............

  1. To heck with Old Faithful, I loved the shots of Lower Falls. What a meager name for such majesty! We may have to revisit Yellowstone our next time west.
