Another planet far far away... A.K.A Yellowstone National Park.
A bull elk looking majestic on a frosted ridge line in Northern Yellowstone. No words can truly describe the awesome feeling that seeing one of these giants with their tall and jagged antlers brings. It’s one of many spectacles that gets me excited to explore the wilderness.

Do you know how to tell difference between grizzly bear and black bear tracks? Yellowstone Forever naturalist Brad Bulin recently gave us some quick tips on how you can tell them apart when out on the trail. 🔈
Even with cold temperatures and snowfall over the last month, there still have been some reports of bears out and about. All the normal bear country hiking/travel season rules still apply. Be alert, carry bear spray and know how to use it, hike in groups, make noise.
Find more information about the differences in these two species by clicking on the link in our profile.

Ginger Yellow is the painting for the month of June 2019. It's another scene inspired by the Upper Geyser Basin at Yellowstone. I had dreamed of going to Yellowstone since writing a report on it in elementary school. I was fascinated by the geysers in particular - I think it was a combination of the geophysics, coupled by the amazing colors produced through their minerals, heat and water. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My husband and I honeymooned in Jackson in 2004, but it was December and we dedicated most of our week to skiing and exploring the immediate landscape. Last year when we knew we would be in Jackson with the kids for 7 days during the summer, I knew we had to visit Yellowstone. Little did I understand when we planned the trip at the last minute the night before, how long the drive really was, and how my oldest son wouldn't take well to our last-minute change in plans. We almost didn't make it, we almost turned around upon entering the park, a huge storm rolled in, but my husband said, we must go on. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We made it to Old Faithful in time to have a quick lunch and got out just as it erupted. Soon after, the storm cleared and made for a gorgeous walk around Upper Geyser Basin.
Sadly, that was all we saw of the park, but gratefully I got to see that much. I know that more trips will be in the future. I hope you enjoy this painting as much as my memory of the landscape, and my own enjoyment once we were there.

Here is one of my most favorite spots in Yellowstone, The Brink of Lower Falls. On a sunny day, you will see a gentle rainbow 🌈 resting between the walls of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. It is formed by the mist that comes from the crashing water below us...The picture can somewhat capture the colors, but it can’t capture the overwhelming array of emotions you experience while standing there! So, go see it with your own two eyes...and feel it with your own, special heart! 👀❤️😊
One of my favorite things about winters in the NorthWest. Snow covered trees and thick fog covering the mountainous terrain makes for quite the magical environment to explore. Soon I’ll be annoyed by the constant snow, but for the moment it’s an enjoyable change of pace.
The past couple of days got me thinking about the amazing wolf encounters we had in Yellowstone last spring break. I had the opportunity to job shadow two biologists in Eastern Manitoba, and one of the days was spent hiking into wolf kill sites. I learned a lot about what they do and how they are trying to bring the moose population up. It was a great experience.
