It was a very needed and relaxing trip :) Vacations are funny though, I was just getting caught up with work and now I'm behind again. Well worth it though. Here's a few snapshots we picked up along the way:

Day 1 - Grand Tetons and Southeast corner of the park. Mainly beautiful mountain views and lots of hot spots:

Day 2 - Southwest Corner of the park. We saw Old Faithful and lots of hot springs. Then drove around looking at mountain views.

These buffalo were doing lots of head butting, better watch themselves around those pools. Most were upwards of 167+ degree

Found this on a little side road

Day 3 - This was spot wildlife day in the northeast corner of the park. We did well too, saw a huge grizzly and her offspring about 400 yards away with an optical, sat in the middle of the road while a heard of buffalo went around us. Countless Elk, Antelope, beaver etc... but the highlight of the day was seeing a brown bear catch and take a baby elk into a tree as a meal from maybe 50 yards away. It was truly nature at it's wildest and we got front row seats.

a beautiful and very unusual place. highly recommended for almost anyone (before or after the 'Turon' season is highly recommended). every places looks like it was ready made for a post card picture.

my wife did a couple of summer seasons in Yellowstone during the wolf reintroduction process.
