Long ribbon... part 5

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.

I'm really loving sharing your visit to Yellowstone. My son took this trip last summer and said it was absolutely amazing. I can see that's true from your photos. Great job!
