Yellowstone National Park/Grand Tetons

Yellowstone & Grand Tetons was my last trip on this particular stint in the US. Yellowstone National Park is the world's first National Park and is the largest single piece of wilderness in the US (not considering Alaska). It spreads over three states - Wyoming, Idaho and Montana. Grand Teton National Park lies right next to it, near the town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

I won't try to describe what I saw or how I felt in this trip, because I can't. This was Nature at its purest, at its wildest and its most dramatic self. Be it geothermal features (geysers, hot springs, mud pots), mountains, waterfalls or wildlife - Yellowstone has it all.

Yellowstone National Park is like a psychedelic whirl of vivid colors - something which needs to be seen to be believed. Note that none of the photos here are digitally modified or enhanced, except exposure corrections in some cases. This is exactly how the colors appear naturally at Yellowstone.

So without any further ado, here goes -

This is the collection of my favourite photos from this trip. This is what you must see, if you really don't have much time or patience to see my photos :-)
