Mud Volcano Area, Yellowstone National Park - August, 2017 Sour Lake, one of the few fairly calm (as in gently simmering rather than overtly boiling) bodies of water in the Mud Volcano region of Yellowstone. #sourlake #landscapes #mudvolcano #NorthAmerica #Photography #roadtrips #Travel #UnitedStates #Wyoming #YellowstoneNationalPark
Mud Volcano Area, Yellowstone National Park - August, 2017 There is still some beauty to be found amid the unforgiving landscape of the Mud Volcano region of Yellowstone.

Grand Canyon: South Rim, Arizona - August, 2018 A squirrel I encountered during my hike of the Bright Angel Trail at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. He seemed annoyed that I interrupted his afternoon meal--you can see pieces of food hanging on his body. #americansouthwest #animals #arizona #grandcanyon #nationalparks #roadtrips #squirrels #Travel #wildlife

Grand Canyon: North Rim, Arizona - August, 2018 An elk I encountered along the Bridle Path on my way back to the lodge from hiking the Transept Trail. She had no fear of humans, probably would have let me walk right up to her, but I kept a respectful distance. Her children hung back across the street and rejoined her after I moved on. #americansouthwest #animals #arizona #elk #grandcanyon #nationalparks #roadtrips #Travel #wildlife

Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park - August, 2017 Lone bison walking in Lamar Valley. #animals #bison #buffalo #NorthAmerica #Photography #roadtrips #Travel #UnitedStates #wildlife #Wyoming #YellowstoneNationalPark
Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park - August, 2017 On my first day in Yellowstone National Park I detoured to Lamar Valley before checking in to my hotel. Lamar Valley is supposed to be another prime wildlife viewing area, but in my case it proved to be less fruitful than Hayden Valley. Nevertheless, I did see a couple of bison herds here, including this one in a clearing beneath a large hill. #animals #bison #buffalo #landscapes #NorthAmerica #Photography #roadtrips #Travel #UnitedStates #wildlife #Wyoming #YellowstoneNationalPark
