In Yellowstone National Park, October, 2014
What you don't see in the photos below are the five or six (large) buses in the parking lot at the head of the walkways to spots to take these shots ... literally hundreds of tourists ... many appear to be international guests ... almost all of them clutching their cameras, cell phones, iPads, tablets, etc ... taking photos of the same scene. Perhaps the difference with our shots is that we don't try to get in the photo. : - ) We're not trying to prove we were here ... just want to remember the beauty of what we saw. It was a beautiful afternoon and perhaps you can see where they came up with the name ... yellow stone.
The Great Falls of the Yellowstone have been an inspiration to many artists. We found a great book that features a lot of this art ... Drawn to Yellowstone by Peter H. Hassrick ...
The book covers artwork featuring many of the other scenes in YNP, as well, and we recommend it to Yellowstone fans.
Thank you for stopping by John's Island.
