West Yellowstone, Montana: The national park is so large and so diverse, it would take a lifetime to see Yellowstone. Luckily, we have been here many times. We have visited all the highlights many times, hiked many of the trails, have seen bison, elk, black bear, grizzly bear, moose, wolves and coyotes. Still, every time there is something new to see. Different weather. Different crowds. With devasting flooding in June of this year, many roads are closed (some for possibly three years) and two northern entrances to the park are closed to traffic. In such a vast area, things constantly change. Visitors need to roll with the flow.
So we did.
We drove the southern loop today. We were away from the bus for nearly eight hours, stopping at many sights. I will post 22 photos tonight - mostly with only captions because I am only one woman.
Until my next update, I remain your national park correspondent.
