Yellowstone National Park - Day 2

Madison River with driftwood

One mountain after another - This one is on the Grand Loop Road

When I see a bunch of cars stopped, I know they have found some wildlife to photograph.

I could not tell what they were so I took another close-up.

Still don't know.  Not buffalo, Not deer, Not moose - maybe antelope???

If you choose not to drive through the park, these yellow buses offer tours.  Traffic is terrible today.  Note that giant of motor vehicles - Treky parked there also.  We are in the parking lot of one of the visitor's centers.

Driving along

Tippy-Too claims that she can read the fishing regulations and would fish if she had a pole.

River Road - Looks like it's one way but No - It's two way narrow.  Treky can handle it.

Norris Hot Pot - Boiling hot water steaming up from the ground.

Another hot pot.

This is hard to read but what it says is don't jump into the boiling water.  Apparently some do each year.

This is what a photograph of steam looks like.

Traffic is very heavy - We entered the park at 8am and it's still heavy.

By the way, we paid $2.51 for gas here in West Yellowstone.

Ron, Tippy-Too and Treky


  1. Your "antelope?" appear to be elk to me. It looks like you are having a wonderful time in Yellowstone. Take your time and don't rush through the park. Don't overlook Mammoth (at the north end of the Park) !! Marv in Auburn WA
