"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

Coyote in Elk Park

This is the little guy who was so entertaining this morning with his dinner acrobatics.

Thermal Feature by Elk Park

Gibbon Meadow

Elk Park

If you look closely you can see a bison standing in the water behind the steam.

Norris Geyser Basin

There is lots of steam rising up from the basin in the mornings these days. Sometimes it is so thick and if the wind is just right it will blow over the road. There is a gravel parking area that is above the basin and I found that I wasn't alone this morning in wanting to get a shot of this, there were a few other cars there with people snapping away.
