Just as I was nearing Biscuit Basin, everything just started to glow all around me as the sun was trying to break through. Instead of being socked in by gloomy for, the park begin to have an ethereal and mystical feel to it.
The storms were so nasty that I actually just debated about hanging out through sunset and getting to bed early, but I just really wanted a great shot of Grand Prismatic Hot Spring from the main overlook. Since it was my last night, I figured I had to try… It was one of just those nights that I knew I it was about to be a complete bust of a shoot. OR, maybe, just maybe the sky would go completely epic and surprise me.
My 24 hours in Mammoth Hot Springs was probably my favorite during my time in Yellowstone National Park last year. I just love the historic feel and I think the hot springs are one of the cooler features in the park
I was able to grab a walk-up campsite at Tower Falls Campground, which would give me easy access to Tower Falls as well as the Lamar Valley.
Five days of continuous landscape photography in Yellowstone National Park was exactly what I needed to gain more appreciation for the park.
The problem with this Paintrush-sunrise plan was that I really did not want to get up at 3 a.m. to hike this section alone and everyone else in my group thought I was straight crazy for thinking that this was a good idea.
After a beautiful sunrise atop Hurricane Pass along the Teton Crest Trail, we dropped into the South Fork of Cascade Canyon to try to hunker down out of the wind and wait for the rest of our group to catch up.
When I first hiked the Teton Crest Trail in 2014, Hurricane Pass was unquestionably my favorite spot on the trail and one of the more impressive views I had thought I have ever seen.
had purposely planned our second day on the Teton Crest Trail to be one of the easier days because I knew we would still be getting our trail legs under us and because I knew the last two days would be the tougher ones.
