Flying from West Yellowstone Airfield, Montana.
|This is the way in to the main volcanic caldera at Yellowstone.|
|And this is the crowded highway this time of year, so no chance to land there.|
|But the scene inside is worth the risk!|
|Old Faithful sure is the center of attention!|
Didn't fly any lower because we're required to maintain 2000ft above the ground over
And way too many witnesses with cameras down there to get away with it....
|It's best to visit the geysers early in the morning when the dew point is such that there's lots of dramatic steam.|
|This is the same Prismatic Pool a couple of hours later, and the steam is all gone.|
|That's a bear down there beside the road, getting his breakfast.|
Sure, you're not allowed feed the bears, but he knows that many still will....
