More Photos (III) from Yellowstone National Park, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming, U.S.A. (August 3-5, 2008)

One of the most photographed views of park: 308-foot Lower Falls, framed by the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. The canyon is 20 miles long, 1,000+ feet deep and 1,500-4,000 feet across; the multicolored walls come from hydrothermally altered rhyolite and sediments.

A bison wanders along the main road through Hayden Valley. In fact, several bison casually strolled straight down the middle of the road, right beside my car, which was slightly unnerving – they’re enormous!
