"There is nothing so American as our national parks. The scenery and wildlife are native. The fundamental idea behind the parks is native. It is, in brief, that the country belongs to the people, that it is in process of making for the enrichment of the lives of all of us. The parks stand as the outward symbol of this great human principle." Franklin D. Roosevelt

Pelican Landing in the Yellowstone River

While Carl and I were watching the spawning trout at LeHardy Rapids this pelican flew in to do some fishing. The pelican has become my favorite bird in Yellowstone. And lucky for me there is a lot of them to watch.
