Yellowstone National Park

Cody, Wyoming is only 52 miles from the east entrance to Yellowstone National Park.  Hubby and I stayed in Cody for all three of the days that we visited the park.

We saw elk at Mammoth Village and Fort Yellowstone:

Yes, folks, that really is a black bear…guess we should invest in a zoom lens:

We saw lots of pronghorn antelope and buffalo in the beautiful Lamar Valley:

We drove through Clark Canyon and Dead Indian Pass.  This pass is amazingly beautiful…well worth the drive!  We also learned of the flight of the Nez Perce here…unbelievable!

As we were coming down the other side of the pass, we saw this mountain:

Heart Mountain Wyoming

We later learned that it is called Heart Mountain.  At the base of this mountain was a Japanese American confinement camp (a concentration camp used for the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII).  There is an interpretative center there.  Had we known, we would have visited the site.

To be continued.

  3. So interesting! I didn’t even know there were antelope in the USA! Excuse my ignorance! The scenery is breath taking – everything is on such a huge scale – more wide angle lens than zoom 🙂

    • I don’t think you are ignorant at all, Allison! It is pretty hard to be knowledgeable about places we have never been to. This is why I love to see the travel pics of my blogging friends…it opens up places to me that I can learn about vicariously!
      Everything about Yellowstone National Park is breath taking! 🙂

  9. Beautiful photography of beautiful country. There is a small lake a few miles west of the Jackson Hole airport I came across a few years ago. Beautiful place.
