This guy was just walking down the road like he owned it. There was a whole heard of them. Bren was very entertained. 

For a second we really thought these guys were going to charge our car. They got so close Bren could have reached out and touched them! No harm was done to the car though. It's all good 

The Bear!

Ok.. So look closely... closer... closer! Ok do you see the little black dot in the middle? Bingo! That is a bear! Bren's one goal in going to Yellowstone was to see an actual bear.. One in the wild not behind bars. His wish was granted with this little guy, well at least from where we were looking he was little. Probably not so much up close!

Mammoth Hot Springs

This is Mammoth Hot Springs, it is a geyser that grows with every eruption. It is very beautiful and massive. 

We hiked all the way to the top. It took us longer than we would have hoped for because Chantal is more out of shape than we thought. She was exhausted when we made it to the top and we still had the hike down.

There were stay on the marked path signs everywhere, we looked the other way for this picture, but isn't it cute! 

Buffalo Calf

This is a mommy buffalo right off the boardwalk to a geyser basin near the Firehole River. You cant see the buffalo calf because it is hiding behind its mommy but look at that hunk right up in front! 

Here is the cute little buffalo calf they were every where, wandering down the road and in the meadows. It was really cute!

Old Faithful

What's a trip to Yellowstone with out visiting Old Faithful? This was Bren's first time ever going to Yellowstone National Park and we had to pay a visit to the most famous old geyser in the park. Most of the time you have a nice long wait for the geyser to go off, but we got lucky, not five minutes after we got there the geyser went off.
