"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

Bison walking along the road next to the Madison River on the way to West Yellowstone. Luckily the herd was next to a large pullout so we could drive into that and around the herd.
This a picture of Old Faithful not erupting. It was taken March 27. It certainly would have made a much more interesting picture if it was erupting but after waiting 40 minutes it was time to move on.
