Yellowstone in July

My daughter and I spent the week in Yellowstone National Park. As always, it was beautiful.  And, not too crowded for the peak month.  We got to see most of the large animals that typically make up the usual venue: elk, deer, bison, bear, and wolf.  No moose this time.  Here are some photos (click on image for bigger view).

Old Faithful, our national icon.

Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River

 Lower Falls, 1979.  Note subtle changes in trees (some spots thinning, others filling in).

Lone wolf, between Norris and West Yellowstone.  Looks a little thin and sickly.

Grizzly bear in Lamar Valley, near a herd of bison.
