Got the urge to hit the road for a bit and had never been to Yellowstone so I made a solo trip this spring just to explore and see if Beth and I would want to go back for a fall trip someday. The answer was YES! The wildlife is second in the US only to Denali and in the fall they will be in their full winter attire and looking all spiffy for the mating season. Right now they are kind of worn out from the long winter and looking a bit scruffy. On top of wildlife the scenery in YNP is very diverse and you will see things there you likely will not see other places. Spring was a good time because there were no crowds but you should be prepared as very little is open in terms of amenities. Here are 68 of the hundreds of photos I took.
