YELLOWSTONE --- Day 2, September 20, 2012

I am continuing to share our western trip in September of 2012.  This is part II of our 2nd day in Yellowstone.. If you missed Part I,  click HERE.   On this post,  we are continuing to check out sites along the North Rim of the Canyon Area of Yellowstone...  If you want to read more information on this area, click HERE

The photo above was taken at the GRANDVIEW Area.   I loved seeing the Grand Canyon (Arizona) in 2011---but seeing this canyon in Yellowstone seemed even more gorgeous!!!!  If you click on the photo,  you can read the info about this area.  IF you EVER get to Yellowstone,  do not MISS the Canyon area.. It's tremendous!!!

Click on all photos for enlargements... I  'think' ??? that Blogger fixed the Slideshow now.




Here is a picture showing the Yellowstone River DEEP down in the canyon... Isn't it awesome?




I love this picture of the canyon.   It takes me forever to go over all of the photos --and then choose one or two to feature!!!!!!




This  collage show you more photos of this amazing area.




Here is a larger version showing the canyon and its steepness and rugged terrain.




The other area that we visited on the North Rim was  Inspiration Point...  This is another area which you should not miss ---if you get to Yellowstone..  For a map of the canyon,  click HERE.   The picture above is a view taken from Inspiration Point. Can you believe the colors!




This  collage shows more photos from Inspiration Point.




Here is another close-up of the canyon.  Amazing,  isn't it???




This  is a photo from Inspiration Point --at a distance -- of UPPER FALLS (which I will feature in my next Yellowstone post when we start our hike on the South Rim). 




Here is a collage showing more photos from Inspiration Point.  The one in the middle shows UPPER FALLS --using the long lens.




This is George doing what we both did the entire trip----taking photos!!!!! ha




Here's one more collage  of us as we checked out the areas of Grandview and Inspiration Point...  This is truly one very amazing place...  Hope you enjoyed seeing more of our Yellowstone photos.

Have a great weekend,  and I'll see you on Monday.

Hugs,

Hi Betsey, I see what you mean when you say it is so hard to pick a few photos for each post. These are wonderful. Absolutely stunning. And to think that God made this all for us to see and enjoy. I am glad that you and George went on this amazing trip!

Friends,

Hello Betsy,, Yellowstone NP is the absolutely the most awesome NP and your photos reflect it grand beauty... Hugs Judy

My Journey With Candida said...

I have no idea why we have never been to Yellow Stone. We have the time... maybe one day. Your pictures are beautiful

Arkansas Patti said...

Have no idea where I got the impression but I never entertained Yellowstone and canyons in the same thought. You are right, the canyons are awesome. Perhaps my impression of Yellowstone stopped with images of Old Faithful, Bears and Yogi. Thanks for expanding my knowledge. Such a beautiful place.

DeniseinVA said...

Fabulous Betsy, all brilliant photos! Did you and George drive to Yellowstone? The last time Gregg and I went we flew into Las Vegas and road-tripped from there, but next time we are road-tripping it the whole way. Can't wait! Thank you for these wonderful photos. I will bookmark this post for when we start traveling.

Catherine said...

Wishing you a most wonderful fantastic weekend Betsy!
I hope it is filled with much love and happy adventures!

Sandra said...

absolutely stunning canyon, truly amazing and i can see why they named it inspiration point...

Sharon said...

As I've told you, it looks like Yellowstone will be on the Summer Trip 2014 agenda, so every time you post something new, I'm all ears!!

Linda said...

Magnificent rugged scenery from those high vantage points. I'm intrigued by the notice that says watch out for the steam vents and geysers at work in the walls of the canyon.

HolleyGarden said...

Just, just - gorgeous! Wow. I didn't even realize that Yellowstone had its own canyon! Your posts always make me want to learn more about the fabulous places you visit.

Kalantikan said...

Your photos are all wonderful and did justice to the place, which is really grand and awesome. But there is something scary with the place, it is beyond comprehension.

Busy Bee Suz said...

It is a magnificent area. When we visited, I had not heard about this part of the park before and I was shocked at how gorgeous it is!
Happy weekend to you and George.
XO

Linda said...

Oh, Betsy, these are so lovely. You've captured the beauty, ruggedness, and color of the canyon so well.

Sylvia K said...

Such a fantastic place and one of my favorite!! Terrific captures, Betsy, as always! They're the next best thing to being there! Hope you and George have a wonderful weekend!!

Fun60 said...

The canyons are just so vast it is hard to imagine standing there and looking at that amazing countryside for as far as the eye can see. Every time I look at your photos I am trying to work out when I can visit some of these places for myself.

Ms. A said...

Breathtaking and awe inspiring. I could sure use a trip and an opportunity to use my camera. Maybe someday.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

What gorgeous photos!

Fred Alton said...

Absolutely fabulous pictures of Yellowstone, Betsy. Thank you so much for sharing your trip with us. Frances has been there but I have not and she says it is a "must-see".

Out on the prairie said...

Such a nice selection of the eauty.I love the colors that all blend so well.

Grandma Bonnie said...

Canyons are amazing works from God. All you beautiful photos made me want to take a trip right now to see them in person up close. Hope you have a great day.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Your photos are just gorgeous, Betsy. Can you believe we've not been to Yellowstone? For some reason, I never thought of Yellowstone NP being this awesome, I only ever saw pics of the geysers and that didn't intrigue me. Or bears, ha ha. I can see that Yellowstone has to be entered on my bucket list!
Have a wonderful weekend. It's very cold here today after too much rain.

Janie said...

I just love Yellowstone, Betsy. Whenever we go, we come back with hundreds of photos. Just whittling them down takes days!
You chose some beauties for this post. So glad you were able to visit and enjoy the Canyons area.

Gina Gao said...

These are REALLY amazing pictures!

Fantastic photos Betsy. I have never been to Yellowstone. I always told Ben I'd like for us to go there but we never got the chance.

carolina nana said...

beautiful pictures, hopefully when hubbie retires we can make a trip to the canyon. That is one place I have always wanted to visit.
It is a rainy,windy day here and is supposed to turn cold tonight. Dogwood winter as the dogwoods have just started to bloom around here.

The Incredible Woody said...

I read an article this last week about a campsite near there. I really think I need to camp there!

Carletta said...

Your photos are a glimpse into what this beautiful place must be in person. Wonderful shots but I bet it's extraordinary to be standing there.
Have a great weekend!

Kalyan P said...

Absolutely grand and marvelous view on Canyon! The collage on you and George is so beautiful. You got excellent photos here on the nature’s wonder. Have a nice weekend :)

Beth said...

These would make awesome note cards! I have made some with my barn pics through Shutterfly. They make wonderful gifts.
Incredible, Betsy! This may be the closest I get to these places, so thank you for taking me on a stroll with you. :>)

Rose ~ from Oz said...

I adore the collages you put together Betsy, and 'awesome' is the apt word to describe these amazingly AWESOME views.

troutbirder said...

I first went to Yellowstone camping with my parents in 1952 & probably 25 times since. It can be very addictive to a troutfisherman/nature lover...:)

Nancy said...

Betsy your shots are awesome as always....and I love the way you interject the mosaics....

You and George are making such precious memories....

Big Dude said...

Your shots look like professional post cards

Shug said...

Simply Magnificent. The views are breath taking in your photos, so I can only imagine being able to view them with your own eyes. God's masterpiece is truly amazing.
Hugs.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Betsy, Wonderful shots of Yellowstone. I also enjoyed seeing that canyon and the area of the falls. Amazing drive to the place with Buffalo and Elk and Wolves (saw the Wolves earlier in the AM that day through binoculars and the long lens of the Nikon). Have a super nice coming week!

Small Kucing said...

Betsy

It's far for me to go there but looking at your photos makes me feel am there now :)

Pat Tillett said...

It's an amazing place! Almost too much to take in...

Linda Gross said...

Magnificent photos, as always! That area sure is rugged!

Chris Rohrer said...

I love this place. It's even better when there aren't people around!!! It can get pretty crazy there. One of the best places to see some amazing landscape!
