I was fortunate to be able to spend nearly a week in Yellowstone during the last week of September. My wife and I did a road trip to Yellowstone earlier in the year and we were amazed that it had taken us so long to see this great national park as well as the Grand Tetons.

I knew I had to come back in the fall.

Yellowstone boasts over 300 miles of paved roads and in the two road trips I logged 2000 miles in the park. I even drove some unpaved roads. The landscape is diverse and fascinating and even in June we experienced all four seasons in a day.

Except for the Grand Prismatic Crater you're not going to see the usual attractions -- e.g. Old faithful -- in this album. My interest is in wildlife and landscape.

All of the pictures from this trip can be seen here http://erader.zenfolio.com/p597366769. It's a work in progress that I am still adding to.

Thanks for looking!
