Some Yellowstone Scenes

I am linking up with Gemma's first Scenic Weekends and Watery Wednesday II.  Please join in on the fun and visit Gemma's blog and to see some pretty waterscapes visit Tricia's Watery Wednesday II.

These are ARCHIVED Yellowstone photos. Yellowstone National Park is my favorite national park. I could go there again and again. The scenery and the wildlife are just incredible. Even though these shots are from my archives I love looking at them and I wish I was there.









Grand Prasmatic, one of my favorite Yellowstone Scenes. The colors and the fog coming off the hot spring, along with the pretty sky created a beautiful scene. These amazing colors are created from pigmented bacteria.

  

Above are some buffalo hanging out near the river and  kicking up some dust. It was cool to be riding along next to one of these massive size buffalo's and hear them snorting and breathing as they walked down the middle of the road.





I hope you enjoyed my re-run of Yellowstone.

To see more Scenic photos please make sure to visit Gemma's Scenic Weekends and Watery Wednesday II join in on the fun.  Thanks for stopping by and for the nice comments. Thanks to both Gemma  and Tricia.
I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.







I could not count how many times we were in buffalo jams, the longest one was over an hour. Waiting for this huge herd of buffalo to move off the road.






Old Faithful being faithful, staying in one of the Snow Lodge cabins we could run out and see the geysers at any time. Hubby walked at on a moonlit night and could hear either wolves or coyotes howling.


I hope you enjoyed my re-run of Yellowstone. Some of my followers might have seen my first post on Yellowstone but my new followers can enjoy Yellowstone for the first time.

  2. Those Yellowstone landscapes are spectacular! Absolutely breathtaking! I would be returning there many times too if I had the camera! And ensured I had a bundle of charged batteries! Many many photos would be taken!

    And thanks so much for all the fanfare for my new Scenic Weekends meme!

  6. The buffaloes are the owner of this place. An hour wait was just your respect showing to them.

  7. I wouldn't even want to know anyone who was bored with Yellowstone! Just loved looking at your pictures again, (almost as much as I would love to go there again). Your Grand Prismatic pictures are the best I've seen of that.

  10. All that steamy hot water looks inviting even though I know the land would be covered by snow right now. Don't know how anyone could get tired of Yellowstone.

  16. If only i have the chance to be near Yellowstone, i wouldn't let it out of my itinerary. I have seen lots of its photos, but it is more personal as if i was there seeing them myself, if a blogger friend took the pictures. Thank you so much, they are really spectacular, and that's a lot of buffallos! Is the river not hot?
