Somewhere in Wyoming, heading for Jackson
We went into Grand Teton NP as soon as we got into Jackson. Here's our first moose sighting on the Gros Ventre loop.
This happened frequently. It's usually a good idea to stop when you see several cars pulled over, but you kind of have to when the buffalo are crossing the road.

Mr. Pickle may have been a bit to close to this buffalo.
More Mormon Row
And more buffalo.
The Snake River winds through Grand Teton NP.

Same area, just a little different angle.
We took a float trip down the Snake with Triangle X Ranch. It was pretty cold and windy - what would normally be an hour trip took close to two hours - but we had a fun, knowledgeable guide and enjoyed the experience.
A nice view from the float trip.
Strike a pose, Mr. Marmot. He was across the road from our cabin at the Old Faithful Lodge.
We were able to see Old Faithful erupt a number of times; it's an incredible sight.
This is by the road as you get to Grand Prismatic Spring. The warmth looked tempting!
Grand Prismatic Spring. I like the steamy effect, but I would enjoy seeing it on a sunny day too.
Mammoth Hot Springs
As we drove out the north park entrance into Montana, we spotted some Rocky Mountain sheep.

The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone; it was pretty exciting standing at the brink of the Lower Falls.

The Mud Volcano area has all kinds of cool mud pots and springs. One handy thing about Yellowstone is almost everything is easily accessible from the road.

I thought I was in Dharmaville for a minute.
