To look at things is very different from seeing it – Oscar Wilde

Second day in Yellowstone

SONY SLT-A99V, f/9, 1/100 sec, ISO 100

After a good nights sleep we are only getting up at 8am! The sky is still covered with thick clouds but it seems a bit warmer.

Today we are heading south towards Old Faithful and Yellowstone Lake. Despite rain and wind we visit a lot of the geysers and hot springs. At Old Faithful we take a longer break to eat and drink something warm and to buy a cap for me. Our jackets are soaked, our jeans are wet and we start feeling uncomfortable.

The animals we see seem to care about the rain a lot less then we do, we see some elk and bison from very close, we also see some bald eagles again plus an osprey, which at first sits on top of a tree and then a few moments later we see him flying by with a fish in his fangs. When we head north through Hayden Valley we see a group of people all looking in one direction. Andreas heads up to them to ask what they had spotted: three grizzlies were up there not too far away, but they have left already.

Before we head back towards West Yellowstone we stop at the Upper and Lower Falls and peek down into the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.

  • Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos and trips..we are at our home in Leceistershire for a couple weeks. Seems likeno matter which one of our houses we come to they all need some kind of work while we are there.
    Would LOVE to catch up with you when you are back in California. Danny and I will travel to you since I’m sure you are a little tired of driving

    Marco, if you would consider selling me a couple copies of your photos (I think they were in Bryce Canyon). I would be the happiest girl in town.

    Take care and watch out for crazy drivers on the road.

    Hugs and Kisses
