I will continue with our last day in the park. We saw some new things but we also went back to a couple of things we saw on our first day. Namely the Yellowstone Grand Canyon and the area where we saw so many Bison on our first day.
On our way to the canyon we saw a small heard of elk feeding and resting. We weren’t lucky enough to see any bulls but we enjoyed watching these just taking it easy.
Back at the Grand Canyon the shear size and beauty of it is breath taking. As much as I tried no image can show the depth and breath of the magnificent place.
This image of the water fall was taken at a much higher vantage point then on our fist day. If you click on the image to make it larger you can actually see the people at the very top of the water fall.
When Angie and Ben were at the water fall they were standing where these people are and said the sound of the water was deafening
Every turn is another image waiting to be taken. This image was taken from the same vantage point as the one of the falls. I just turned 180 degrees and was greeted with this magnificent view.
Not too far from where the water fall is there is this Osprey nest. There was a placard detailing how many times the Osprey would frequent the nest. It was not their mating season so we had no chance of seeing them on the nest. I never saw one the entire trip.
Heading for the land of the Bison and came across this beautiful site of the hills, trees, and puffy clouds. These clouds later produced a pretty decent rain storm and gave the park about a half inch of rain.
I’ll be posting some more images soon. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and be careful.
This was my fourth trip to Yellowstone National Park and I had never been to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone until this trip. We had to do a fair amount of walking to see the entire beauty of the canyon. I was completely unaware that this was in the park.
My images do not do it justice. It is simply breathtaking to see. All the colors, depth and breath of the canyon is truly spectacular. I know you’re getting tired of me saying this but click on the image to see the full detail in a larger image.
I was amazed at the trees growing on the sides of the canyon walls. I don’t know what’s keeping this tree from falling over bur you can see smaller trees taking hold along the walls.
And then you see the water falls. You can hear it as well as you get closer. When Angie and Ben visited the canyon they hiked up to the top of the water falls. That was too much walking and climbing for me so I let my lens do the traveling for me.
You can see people standing on the right side of the falls. It is truly a majestic site to behold.
You can see the trees growing all around the canyon. How they take hold and grow is purely amazing to me.
I don’t really know what else to say about the canyon except to say WOW! It is so beautiful to see in person and like I said my images just don’t do it justice.
One final look at the falls before we move on.
I have some wildlife images for you in the next post (hopefully) tomorrow. Thanks as always for checking out my blog.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
