Some more of my favorites from Yellowstone National Park

Today was warmer and partly cloudy. We picnicked at the Yellowstone Grand Canyon after taking pictures of the falls.

Then we arrived at our hotel room in the park and discovered we have a view of Yellowstone Lake. We have spent all afternoon and evening gazing at it.

Well, I also gazed at my photos and processed these for you (and for myself, I’ll admit…so much fun). I took artistic liberties with Sapphire Pool. It’s more pale in reality, but still beautiful. This is in Biscuit Basin, which is right near Old Faithful.

Here is the reporting photo, so you know exactly what Sapphire Pool looks like on a cloudy day.
