Yellowstone National Park -- many pics

I recently returned from a one week stay in Yellowstone National Park. After much agonizing over which camera(s) to take, the GX8, ZS100, and EPL6 won out along with the 75-300II, 12-40 f2.8, and 7-14 lenses and a much used polarizer. IMO this was just about a perfect set of lenses for Yellowstone. The only glitch the entire week was one DOA memory card.

Now onto a few pics:

Old Faithful. Everyone is required to take at least one pic of Old Faithful even though it is only one of many geysers in the Park. Now that we have that out of the way....

A hot Spring, the largest and best known hot spring is the Grand Prismatic Spring which is not shown here because it was obscured by fog after my 2 mile trek to get to and from the upper overlook!

Dead trees and a desolate environment are common in some areas such as here at Mammoth Hot Springs.

Here at Mammoth the minerals brought up by the hot springs over the millennia have built up and turned the ground many colors.

The landscape outside the geyser areas consists of plains, foothills and faraway mountains.

In the plains one can find bison, by the tens and hundreds.

Other wildlife that we found included the prong-horn antelope, elk, and bighorn sheep. We did not see bear or wolves.

Bighorn Sheep.

Enuf for now.
