Yellowstone… The Hayden Valley

I’m finally getting out to explore a little farther into Yellowstone. This week I’m sharing images made in the Hayden Valley. I was delighted to come upon a red fox hunting the other evening, and to be met with a passing storm at sunset, giving some extra accent to the valley and sky. I hope you enjoy the photos!

    • I did get to watch one young bison ford the river, and leap and play when it emerged. The quality of light wasn’t what I wanted, but it’s one of those sites I’ll personally get to treasure. And you’re right, the Hayden Valley does have its magic…

  1. I so appreciate your pix. we went thru YNP back in 1977 but hurrying to Seattle for a seminar so missed alot of detail. We saw Pike’s Peak, Tetons, much of Wyoming and Montana and Idaho and eastern Washington, but only a survey. Oh, it was a missions seminar. Thanks again.

  2. Would love to visit Yellowstone it’s been on my list for years but the closest I got was my Washington national park and Yosemite. Love the red Fox images. You may be interested in a few of my images and stories too from a like minded traveller
