I have so much material on Yellowstone National Park, I almost wasn’t sure how to narrow it down to just four articles for this month. There’s so much I want to write about, like camping and lodging options in Yellowstone, and visiting Old Faithful and all the main attractions.
But for now, I thought I’d follow-up my 9 Things You Didn’t Know About Yellowstone with a broad photo essay showing the various sides of the park. Enjoy some of the images I captured, and check out more on the Quirky Travel Guy Flickr.
