Sunday we spent the day driving around Yellowstone and once again had to deal with crumby weather. It was a nice relaxing day though and it was enjoyable to be out with nature and to see all the wonderful creations this world has to offer. This is only the second time I've been to Yellowstone and I'm ready to go back again soon, when the sun decides to come out. I want to stay in West Yellowstone though so I'm close to the park and can take a couple of days to really enjoy it. It was Annie's first time to Yellowstone and I think she was impressed and really enjoyed herself. It was nice to have someone who's been there a lot driving us around so we could just enjoy the scenery and get out and take pictures when ever we wanted to stop. Thanks Jason and Nicole for playing tour guides!
Momma Bison's with their babies right when entered the park.
This little guy was running all over the place, clearly hoping to get a hand out. I love that he has his cheeks stuffed full.
Even though it was cold, it made for a lot steam everywhere which was pretty cool.
The mudpots. If you blow up the picture you can see the mud spurting out.
This bison walk all the way across this open area and stopped by the path that goes around the hot pots. There were two different groups of people on either side while the bison just stood there and stared deciding what it was going to do. Finally it just walked off into the woods.
One of my favorite shots of the day.
Yes, I was really that close to the bison. Probably not the smartest thing to do, but I'm glad he decided that he was content to lay there and just chew his cud.
There was a whole crowd of people out to see this guy. We saw them up on a hill in a big crowd. Nicole and I got out to see what they were looking at and at first we thought it was just another herd of bison. Then we saw the coyote and had to get some shots ourselves.

I stole this off her blog cause I didn't get a pic of the three of them while we were here.

Some female elk. We were trying to decide where the big Bull was hiding, watching over his heard.
The sun finally decided to make an appearance as we were making our way out of the park.
This was the view at Henry's Lake that we were supposed to have on Saturday.

The Teton's out the car window.
