Fall Day in Yellowstone

I had a rare day off last Friday so Brett and I spent the day exploring the park, and it was a pretty fun trip.  Not long after driving in we stopped and photographed a Bison swimming across a river, and a huge bull elk bugling in some tall golden grass.  Later in the day we stalked a coyote, hiked to Fairy Falls, and finally saw Great Fountain Geyser go off, which is somewhat unpredictable and I hadn’t yet been able to see it.

I’ve got just about 10 more days out here before I’ll be packing up for the long drive home to Virginia, but I’m going to try and squeeze in another trip to the park before I go.
