Lori and I were joined by Fran and Ginger for a trip through Grand Teton , Yellowstone, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, and Arches National Parks, We camped for 6 nights at Yellowstone and 4 nights at Grand Canyon. It was a great trip, with sometimes-dramatic skies and a bit of precipitation. It was colder than normal at Yellowstone, but we were well prepared.



These pictures are from Yellowstone, where we saw quite a bit of wildlife, especially for June. We saw 5 grizzly bears, 2 black bears, 1 wolf, and many pronghorn, elk, buffalo, osprey great blue herons, etc. We also witnessed numerous geyser eruptions, including Lone Star, Old Faithful, Grand, Castle, Lion, Little Cub, Sawmill, Spasmodic, Daisy, Grotto, Beehive, and others.



We had a few adventures in the wheelchair, which I think everyone enjoyed.



We took another stroll around the Upper Geyser Basin. We saw Lion, Little Cub, Spasmodic, Sawmill, and Castle geysers errupt. A highlight was watching Castle unexpectedly erupt against a backdrop of very dramatic skies. Punchbowl Spring was another highlight.
