For a nature-lover and wildlife enthusiast, each day in Yellowstone is another magic carpet ride.

The experience of my second week here has been just as wondrous as the first.  I can barely keep up with the processing of the thousands of images I take, but here are a handful.

Now I see the secret of making the best person: it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.
