Today we saw rivers, the super caldera,
hot springs, and ponds.
More water, less road.
And we saw more trees. Pasadena Adjacent wrote a comment a few posts back that on a visit she once took, she experienced the same weather... and lodge pole pines. I misread it as "the weather was lodge pole pines" - and you know what, PA? You are right! The pines create a weather of significance. Their scent, their clouding the road, their presence in every photo - nothing but 'weather' has the same ability. Weather is in every photo. And in Yellowstone/the Tetons, pines are too.
Burnt or virgin, the pines and spruces are one of the beauties a camera lens absorbs. And my eye's camera could not get enough.
