  • Yellowstone Spring 2017 Trip Report: Days 12 & 13

    June 7, 2017 I’m referring to this day as Yellowstone Strikes Back, since we struggled to find much to photograph after our banner day on Tuesday. We were awake before 4am, and on the road by 4:30.  The idea was to get down to the Lake and find grizzly bears, which had been seen the last couple days (as everyone
