Yellowstone National Park
August 9, 2016
Yellowstone is a very special and unique place where wildflowers bloom in the lower geyser basin and the ground steams from many geysers and paint pots along the beautiful Fire Hole River. I took some liberties and added canvas to this image as the plain blue sky lacked drama.
We stopped at Mt Haynes this morning to enjoy the view and watch the fly fishermen wade into the water along the Madison.
The Nez Perce Creek flows into an open valley where buffalo often roam.
