Yellowstone Southeast Entrance Road

For this week's Scenic Sunday post, I'm going to show some of our first views of the park. We entered through the southeast entrance, and the road to the lake drove over a mountain range with some beautiful views. Even in late June, some snow was still visible below the road in places.
And, from a couple of days later, here's a view from the rim looking into the caldera. As you may know, Yellowstone is a supervolcano, so it wouldn't be a good place to be if it ever blew up.
Believe it or not, I've still got lots more photos from Yellowstone, so if you've liked the tour so far, keep checking back!

  8. Amazing scenes, what a beautiful, wild place.
    It wouldn't be a good place even if you meet a bear but it is worth the risk if you want to see these amazing places.
