Skywatch: Yellowstone

It is getting hard to concentrate on my daily life with vacation coming up but it will not be long at all before Michelle and I reenter the magical world of Yellowstone.
Lass year was the best trip to Yellowstone that we have ever had so it will be hard to top it but I am sure that we will have a blast. This year I am planning to try my hand at a bit more landscape photography as well as all of the animals. Both of these shots were taken in Yellowstone last year. The top photo is a shallow seasonal pool that we found on our way out to the Roosevelt Junction. Below is a a shot of bison feeding in the Madison River valley.
I do not think that I will do much blogging while we are away. I should have Internet access and will try and check up on things but we usually spend about 12 to 13 hours in the park each day so there is not a lot of time left for processing the pics and writing the posts. But don't worry because I am setting up posts for each day that I am gone and if I get time I will try and post some pics from Yellowstone on the new Ecobirder group page on Facebook. You can find a link on the sidebar of this blog and everyone is welcome to join.

I hope you have a wonderful time Ecobirder and bring back lots of new experiences! Shelley sent me over to have you stop by my blog "Sunny Side Up" and help me ID a dragonfly. She says you are good at that. If you have time, that would be great!
