I have fulfilled a childhood dream of visiting Yellowstone! The last two days have been an experience through all four seasons, took pictures of and with everything I could, and fully embraced mother earth’s wonder. Yellowstone, you have been nothing short of amazing and I’ll visit again!
So viel schon von Geysiren geschrieben, jetzt wird es mal Zeit für ein Bild!
Das hier 🔝 ist der wohl bekannteste Geysir im Yellowstone Nationalpark: der Old Faithful! Etwa alle 90 Minuten ist der Druck in der Quelle unter der Oberfläche so stark, dass er ausbricht und eine ordentliche Fontäne aus der Erde schießt! In Bestform erreicht diese eine Höhe von 50 Metern!
Das ist auf meinem Bild natürlich nicht zu sehen - denn beim eigentlichen Ausbruch war nur eine Horde Asiaten mit Kameraobjektiven so lang wie Baseballschläger (und im Wert eines Kleinwagens!) vor meiner Linse 😂🤷🏻♀️
Coyote hunting! We had not imagined that we would see a Coyote hunt in a snow with its nose dive! This Coyote before we arrived on the scene had made 3 successful hunts in 15mins and did one more in front of us. After catching and quickly relishing a fat meal it wondered off looking for more.. thanks for pointing it out @sciencemowgli

Yellowstone National Park is a very unique park to visit with all its oddities & beauties rolled into one. There is so much to see & do you need at least a week to explore. I went in the end of July ‘17 & it was extremely crowded. I spent two days visiting and ugh I didn't get to see all of it. I know I gotta go back again someday. So here’s some (maybe useful) tips :
1. The wildlife that you’ll see : elk, bear, moose, bison, wolves, etc. The bison walks right down the road making YOU either stop driving your car or move outta the way.
2. All the natural formations & hot springs are mind boggling to witness. Please stay on the path though as some of the hot springs are nothing more than a thin crust covering boiling water beneath. I witnessed a foreign family wandering off the path & onto these fragile areas for a better photo opportunity. I couldn’t believe this kind of people!! 😤 With all its natural, dangerous beauty, I can see where this park doesn’t forgive stupidity.
3. The pavement was literally melting in one area of roadway, due to magma underneath, when I visited. It just goes to show how Yellowstone is a living, breathing entity. 😍
4. Bring snacks & drinks along for long rides. Bring binoculars. We stopped in one section to watch a dying elk be overcome by wolves. You never know what to expect here.
5. Okay this is not one of those (useful) tips but... did you know that Yellowstone was one of the settings in the end-of-the-world movie “2012” that aired in 2009 ?! Yep you’re welcome 🌝
I know I’m a first timer to come visiting this HUGE park & maybe shouldn’t give y’all tips like an expert but it’s truly a magical world out there & it’s surely worth seeing. Trust me the sights here will be remembered for the rest of your life. 💯
