Trip to Tower Falls

July 14, 2015

I finished up my trip to Norris Geyser Basin around 9:00 A.M. so had plenty of time to see another part of Yellowstone. I chose to take the road to Tower Falls, since I had not been there in the past. This is the most beautiful part of Yellowstone, landscape-wise.  I enjoyed the big views of mountains and hills and the short views of wildflowers. Hopefully, I'll get to spend more time in this area and Lamar Valley.  I have two more friends coming to visit Yellowstone with me but I'll be deferring to their wishes as to where we'll be going.

Fields of wildflowers and conifers

I think this is a penstemon - loved by bees

So many colors - the fields are changing into fall colors
