Back to Yellowstone

Wednesday morning, Kevin & I were up, out and at the park entrance at 8am. We wanted to get an early start before the crowds set in.

Not long after entering the park, we saw this Elk enjoying his morning walk…

We headed south to see the paint pots and geysers…Because it was early morning and the air was still cool, the steam was amazing coming from the geysers..
