Yellowstone, Yukon, Yosemite

A Fellow Traveler in a Yellow shirt,
and Late Summer Yellow flowers,
and a Yeti friend.


Two of my favorite National Parks,
my life-long love in yellow,
one of my favorite rivers,
some yellow flowers,
and a tall Yeti.
Enjoy all

The Rockies are composed of several Ranges in this area such as,
The Lewis and Clark Range,
and
The Flathead Range



~~~ Yeti ~~~
A friend that Martha made on the trip.
This Yeti (from Asia) was visiting
his Sasquatch relatives



I hope you enjoyed this tour of Y's.

Brandi said...

Thanks for the mini-vacation!

Daryl said...

Tell Martha I love her stance .. she got the posture right but she's too pretty to be mistaken for a Yeti .. and I dont know her well enough to know if she's a yenta ...

Your landscape photos are always truly amazing. I especially love the yellow flowers in Montana country photo.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Wow! You certainly have been to a few cool places beginning with Y!

Reader Wil said...

Now, you have great pictures of your country: Yellowstone Park speaks to my imagination, as I have seen it in many movies and that goes also for Yukon River. Great choices!

RuneE said...

I would have liked to visit Yellowstone, but I'm afraid of the Yeti!

Odd that I should come from Bear Naked's blog about Yogi Bear straight to yours about Yellowstone (Jellystone) Park!!

Great series of Y's.

Louis la Vache said...

"Louis" had forgotten about the Lewis and Clark and Flathead ranges in the Rockies.

Over at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo, "Louis" and his 'Editor' Yell at each other both in the text and in the comments....

Troy: Great group of Y photos, loved the Yeti.

The Texican said...

Tell Martha to smile next time. Enjoyed those Troy. Pappy

AphotoAday said...

That "Y"ellowstone photo at the top is REALLY beautiful!   Must get there again someday...

Neva said...

What neat photos! I love the vista of flowers!

Ackworth Born said...

The top picture is quite awesome - the third though a typical tourist shot the inclusion of the figures puts the landscape into perspective.

Any mention of Yellowstone though instantly makes me think of Yogi Bear which is awful of me I know.

TSannie said...

Great y's. Especially that first photo.

imac said...
