When I was growing up in Alabama and August rolled around with its continued intense heat we’d call it the dog days of summer. You’d spend your day at the swimming pool or under the shade with a glass of sweet tea. So for those suffering in the midst of summer heat consider this post a bit of a respite, as these were all made when the road between Yellowstone and the Tetons first opened in May 2016.
So stunning…brings back great memories!
Thanks Mrs. P!
Snow pictures are definitely much appreciated here in Texas! Thanks for the beautiful shots.
Sooo beautiful Russ! Always enjoy the virtual nature moments your photos offer, when I can’t be out there now myself!
Hey, thanks Laurel, nice to hear from you!
Beautiful series, Russ 🙂
But the last three are simply stunning 🙂
Thanks for sharing… and have a beautiful day ahead 🙂
Thanks Sreejith Ji!
Great photos as always. Back in the 1970s when I worked at the park, it was while the snow was melting and retreating that we arrived and started the summer season, and had wet feet from puddles just walking a few yards to work, as well as limited trails open for hiking, etc. But for years after I would be homesick for that mucky thaw season.
I’d give anything to have experienced this place in the 70’s with fewer crowds et al. I’m just thankful that today we get to share it with wolves!
