The multiple faces of the Yellowstone National Park. The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. The Yellowstone Lake. All observed from the top of the Mount Washburn. Some of the coolest parts of the park, and more important not as crowded. It is nice to enjoy the natural beauty while not surrounded by hundreds of noisy bystanders.
Not sure why but all of these trees are dead. No evidence of fire. They are just dead from whatever other reasons. There are whole mountain sides of them. It is very striking to see while hiking to the top of the Mount Washburn.
