The first day I arrived in Yellowstone the weather was unusually warm. This was my first encounter viewing a bison and I was not disappointed! Watching an animal this size swim gracefully through the water was an experience I will never forget. It's winter coat was in the process of shedding and I imagine the cold water felt wonderful. It was such an amazing sight to behold.#nature#landscape#animals#bison#yellowstone#natgeo#yourshotphotographer
Many animals walked very close to my car today, including a Grizzly with her two cubs, some elk, and some bison, and some were farther away, including another Grizzly with two cubs, a moose with her baby, and a wolf terrorizing a pack of elks. #Yellowstone#GrandTetons#wyoming#nationalparks
Immediately upon arriving at Upper Geyser Basin we saw Beehive Geyser erupt (photo 2), which was very exciting as it only erupts every 8-12 hours. While waiting for Old Faithful’s next predicted eruption we took a tour of the Old Faithful Inn (Photo 3)- the building that inspired “parkitecture”; the building reminded me of something out of the Berenstain Bears books. For some reason the tour guide and other guests were convinced that we were on our honeymoon 🤷♀️. We saw Old Faithful erupt (photos 4 and 5) before exploring the rest of Upper Geyser Basin.

Grand Canyon of Yellowstone is mighty and awe-inspiring. Yellowstone is so interesting and diverse, from the majestic landscapes to the hydrothermals and incredible wildlife. Can’t wait to come back. #travel#wyoming#yellowstone
