Bison, Yellowstone

Photographed with a telephoto lens at about 100 feet away in accordance with park safety guidelines.

Please don't approach animals at Yellowstone or any other national park- they are wild. This is not a petting zoo, it is not Disneyland, not an opportunity for a selfie with a bison. The wild animals in the parks can kill you, even if they appear docile or even lazy. Leaving animals be at a safe distance isn’t just for your own safety, it’s out of basic respect for the living landscape that the animals are a part of. Tread lightly on the Earth, treat the plants, animals, waters, air & minerals with dignity and respect their power.

Grand Teton, Wyoming

I really fell in love with this place. It was unexpected- mostly because the reputation of Yellowstone, just a short drive to the north, overshadowed the purview of Grand Teton. I think that's probably true for a lot of people. But Grand Teton is not second rate and it left a special mark on me. I need to get back to The Tetons. When I do, it won't be soon enough.
