I have not been to Yellowstone National Park in years, but I really love that place. Not during the middle of the day during tourist season at the main attractions – the crowds are hellish. But you can almost have the place to yourself if you get out at dusk or dawn, or go in September or in the winter. And those moments can be glorious.

Here is an early morning image of the Fishing Pot thermal spring on the edge of Lake Yellowstone in the morning fog. Legend has it that old trappers used to catch a trout in the lake, swing the line over the thermal spring and cook their meal right on the spot. Sounds like heaven.
