A Photographic Journey

Considered by many to be one of the best geyser shows in Yellowstone, Beehive Geyser can powerfully spray its water and steam up to a height of 200 feet and maintain it for approximately five minutes - and if you're lucky, you will see a rainbow in the fine mist. Beehive is one of the major geysers of the Upper Geyser Basin, and although it is not predictable like Old Faithful, a smaller geyser nearby, appropriately named Beehive's Indicator, often erupts shortly before Beehive, giving visitors enough warning to make it in time to see the big show.

The Lake Hotel is the oldest hotel in the National Park Service and is a National Historic Landmark. Originally opened in 1891 as a standard railroad hotel, it was later remodeled by Robert Reamer, the architect who designed the Old Faithful Inn, and has since undergone several remodels and additions. Today, the Colonial Revival-style hotel offers the simple, casual elegance of days gone by, with a string quartet that plays in the lobby during the summer months - and of course, spectacular views of Yellowstone Lake.

Wild cats are by far the most difficult of Yellowstone's inhabitants to see - in part, because two of the feline species, mountain lions and lynx, are not here in large numbers, but also because they are largely nocturnal in behavior and very elusive by nature. Bobcats are more common, but still very difficult to see. This bobcat was hunting waterfowl along the river's edge when I caught its image.
