Snowy Mountains and Geyser Sunsets: USA Road Trip II

This is part 2 in a series of images from my recent road trip across the USA. See part 1 here.

Grand Teton and Yellowstone are neighbouring national parks in central USA and are both unreal. As in, sharp-snowy-peaks-wildlife-everywhere-geysers-galore-buffalo-on-the-road unreal.

As much as we focused on checking off as many kilometers as we could in our first four days, we decided to take a much-needed break on day 5 and 6 of the trip to explore both of these stunning parks. Two days was not enough to see much, but they were still long enough to leave us mesmerized and in awe.

We were so lucky in that we stumbled upon an evening with near-freezing temperatures and a beautiful sunset – a perfect formula for dramatic geyser shows.

We were also lucky that we witnessed Old Faithful erupt, though I have to say there were more impressive geysers than this famous one.

The wolves even started howling as we were leaving the park.

Thank you for sticking around to part 2 of the series! Look out for the next and final part will feature a special appearance by all of Yellowstone’s wildlife!
