  • Fourth of July Memories: 2003

    A couple times over the years I’ve been in Yellowstone on the fourth of July.  This was back in the days before I discovered the wonders of spring in the park.  Since I had that epiphany, summer trips have largely been a thing of the past (with one notable exception).  Still, my early July trips were pretty good.  You had
