skywatch friday

How western is this shot? Buffalo grazing under a big old blue sky that goes on forever. This is in Yellowstone. We didn’t see a lot of wildlife, some moose in Grand Teton National Park, mule deer in both parks, a coyote trotting through the tall grass in the distance, but we did see plenty of buffalo wandering around Yellowstone, including on the roads holding up traffic! They got a lot of rain out west this year so the wildlife don’t need to come down out of the bush for food and water, good for the critters, bad for the tourists!

  1. I’ve never been to Yellowstone….your photos make me want to book a trip today! Just great!

  2. Oh I’d love to go to Yellowstone–but not in that traffic. George and I love to travel–but we do NOT like crowds…

    Beautiful pictures though in a beautiful area of the country.

    • The traffic wasn’t bad at all Betsy, except when the buffalo’s got in the way. September is a great time to go west, cooler temps and hardly any crowds!

  3. Awesome! That photo of the sky is so gorgeous, with that amazing cloud above!

    And the buffalo – oh I just love all animals in nature – I hope none got hurt.

    Have a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. That’s one amazing sky, and the buffalo shot is phenomenal. You must have a LONG lens there, girl! I read the posts below and am very touched. The one about Aunt Bessie, how blessed you are to have her, so inspiring. And your dad, touched by an angel. I do hope the visit did give him some peace. Thank you so much for visiting. I like your blog very much.

  5. Two fabulous pics. I’m sure that cloud formation has a name ~ but I’m not sure what! And the Buffalo is such a majestic beast ~ and the colours in the photo gorgeous.

  6. I love the buffalo’s expression….such chilled control. And the first shot is classic too – you’ve really captured a sense of openness.
