Yellowstone Flowers and Rivers

We decided to go north to Yellowstone next since it was so cold in the Tetons, which are higher. The original plan had been to camp in both places since the room rates are ridiculous. With this option taken away by the weather, we got a room for one night in West Yellowstone and did a quicker two day visit. The main Yellowstone drive is a figure eight.

We drove the bottom loop the first afternoon. Though it was mid-June, it was still spring here. Flowers were abundant--but most of them we had no names for.

This looks like a phlox.

This is a lupine.

There were several rivers that attract fly-fisherman.

And there are rushing waterfalls.

For size reference, note the pick-up truck at the top of the picture below.
