I took my annual fall trip to Yellowstone. I was gone 2 weeks. Lori was with me for the first week, and when she left Fran joined me along with Greg Chandler for 3 days. I spent the remainder there by myself. Weather was great and wildlife watching was the best ever.

On the last day of my vacation I got up early to pack and leave. When I got to Fountain Flats, I saw the the sandhill cranes where there. I stopped and spent an hour taking pictures in the predawn and dawn light. It was quite cold, but a wonderful time.
