Over the past 15 years or so I’ve made 12 Yellowstone trips (somewhat of guess as the first few trips were shot on a film camera, the slides from which are somewhere, I’m sure…) My photo buddy and naturalist-birder extraordinaire, Spark has joined me on all but one. While the park remains a stunning monument to the beauty and beast of Mother Nature, much has changed over the years. It use to be that an early and late season visit provided a bit of  solitude, but recently campgrounds are full, roads crowded and new restrictions in place.  While I might complain “our park” is being overrun,  sharing the power of Yellowstone with more people will hopefully inspire preservation of our wild places… and for that, I’m willing to share.


ps. The swan and bighorn sheep images are each made from two photos taken a few seconds apart.
