Photo: Bison in Yellowstone NP

Taken June 6, 2008

You read that right and nope Yellowstone is not in the southern hemisphere- when my family visited this amazing National Park in early June we got caught in a late show shower!  Made me feel like we were on a trip out West to go skiing…

FYI, while the thermal activity at Yellowstone is pretty neat what really puts it a cut above is the insane amount of wildlife you see pretty much everywhere.  I’d never seen most of the animals in the wild before but by the end of our three days in the park we saw among other things black bears, elk, moose, mountain goats, and buffalo that are so ubiquitous that you almost don’t notice them after a bit.  It was by far my best wildlife experience until I went on safari in Africa the next year.
