Today I will continue with our Yellowstone adventure. Remember to click on the images to show a larger more detailed image. While planning for this trip Jeanne did a really smart thing and booked a tour guide through Yellowstone. It was a one day tour, which touched on some of the more salient parts of the park.
We did the same thing when we were in New York. We could go to Ground Zero on our own, but it was so much more informative and enjoyable taking the guide.
We got super lucky in that our guide (Alex) was an extremely knowledgeable individual but also very accommodating. As you look at the above image on the far left is Brian, Alex, Jeanne, Debbie, Miles (young grandson of Brian and Debbie), Sarah, and John. Brian is from Florida and John is from Southern Missouri.
They were all a delight to be around and we all enjoyed each others company.
As you are driving through the park, if you see a number of cars pulled over there is a very good chance there are wildlife nearby.
We heard a gun shot near by and the elk immediately became alert. Not too much later we learned that it was in fact not a gunshot but a nearby pine that had snapped off at the bottom and fell. It certainly got everyone’s attention that were watching the elk.
Our tour is just beginning. More images tomorrow and some more stories as well.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
