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 went to West Thumb Geyser Basin to see the wonderful thermal features there, especially Black Pool. The skies were very dramaic and we just managed to make it back to the car before the rain started.
