We got stopped in the first of innumerable bison/elk/bear-jams. Seeing a huge elk stag lazing in a meadow, then getting stuck as some bullish bison tramped along a backroad, deliberately walking out in front of vehicles to assert its dominance over the park. We made the right choice, visiting in the 'Fall'; a guide we spoke to said that the summers are horrendous, with 2 hour animal jams, as people slow or stop in the road to take photos, or foolishly approach on foot to ...
... where we could find parking and avoiding the crowded spots with plans to return after Labor Day when the crowds would thin out. Even after the Labor Day weekend, we found it wise to leave early or late in the day to explore the more popular or unique attractions. We enjoyed a fun-filled, action packed week exploring the park 5 of the 7 days we were here.

We also sprinted like a antelope, jumped as far as we could like a snow hare, stood one one foot like a blue heron, tested our sense of smell like a bear. We had a fun ...
... and turned westward towards Morris Geyser Basin. Had wanted to visit this place but for two days, we arrived too late. It was close to 9pm by then and so headed back to the West Entrance but not before stopping to catch the sunset. The weather is much cooling today. It's mainly in the lower twenties. So, even though the sun still beats down on us, it doesn't make walking around too tiring. It was quite a pleasant walk. It was very windy by the lakeside though, so it can ...
