Yellowstone National Park

The Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park are only 50 miles apart from the South entrance, you drive along Land donated by John D. Rockefeller, wanting to preserve Land for all future generations, he bought this land and created the Grand Teton Nat. Park.
Our first stop was at Lewis Falls....
believe it or not, you cross over the Continental Divide three times before getting to Old Faithful.....
Lots of Snow still on the ground!!
Not to long after entering Yellowstone Nat. park, we Spot our first BEAR!!!!I have a good eye for wildlife anymore!!!
Chuck waiting patiently for OLD FAITHFUL!!
As were alot of other people.....including this group of Bou Scouts....all with similar hairstyles!!!
She went off Right on TIME!!!!!AMAZING!!!
Then we popped into Old Faithful Lodge for some Warm Coffee!!
Getting back in the car, we soon came upon these buffalo, Notice the Baby one nursing????How cute is that???/
Then we got out at one of the Upper Geysers.....the flow is HOT....


the Steam felt good on this Cool day!!

the pools were Beautiful!!!
Opal and Turquoise pools!!
What a great hike around these geysers!!
Keppler falls!!these were Tall and fantastic!!
See the Eagle  below????

A Beaver Dam on the river!!
What a WONDERFUL VIEW back to Jackson Hole!!!
And just as we entered back into Grand Teton National Park, driving along the John D. Rockefeller Parkway...we spotted a few cars parked along side the road, I knew this Meant more BEARS!!!!And "da BEARS" did not disappoint, not one bear, not two Bears but the THREE little Bears with their Momma Bear!!!!  I Have found my Calling....Photographing Wildlife!!!
