Vast, volcanic Yellowstone has been home to bison since prehistoric times. During the winter months, when higher areas are covered in a thick layer of snow, the bison migrate to lower grounds where it’s easier to feed on the grass. Wildlife lovers will be in their element; the park is also home to bears, elks, wolves and the pronghorn antelope.

Water flows over the powerful Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River as viewed from the edge of the Falls at the base of the Brink of Lower Falls Trail at the west end of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. At 308 ft high, the Lower Falls are almost 2x the height of Niagara Falls, and it the largest volume waterfall in the Rocky Mountains in the United States.  Flow rates vary from 680 cu ft/s in fall to 8400 cu ft/s in the spring runoff. Yellowstone NP is the oldest national park in US & world, & the 2nd largest national park in the Lower 48 after Death Valley. Sitting on the largest volcanic system in North America (the Yellowstone Caldera) it contains 50% of the world's hydrothermal features, & many plant and animal species. #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #yellowstonepledge #yellowstoneforever #Wyoming #hiking #yellowstonenps #yellowstonenp #yellowstonepark #yellowstonecountry #nationalparksusa #nationalparksadventure #nationalparkphotography #nationalparksus #nationalparkstraveler #usinterior #goparks #the59parks #visitwyoming #americasbestidea #waterfall #natgeotravel #nationalparktrust #nationalparktraveler #npcapics #usnationalparks #usnationalparkpics #discoverearth

Today's self portrait is also applicable for Waterfall Wednesday! This was taken at Osprey Falls and involved a short but strenuous section after (and before, due to the loop) a long flat section. That steep, difficult section was actually really fun: every corner seemed to reveal something new about the canyon that this fall was in. However, even I got some vertigo while taking those switchbacks, so be careful if/when you go! And bring water and bug spray =D I didn't see any Osprey, but I did get covered in tons of spray…because of the mist, get it? Taken with my Pentax 645z

I'm spending some time thinking about some of my favorite pictures. This #wolf from @yellowstonenps ranks up there. I was driving slowly down the road and a wolf ran across in front of me, there happened to be a pullout right there too, so I stopped and shot from my window as it howled on a cold winter morning. It's Christmas time 🎄, why not buy a print for someone you love, of something they will love to see each day. Over on my website (the DaveShumway.com one) I have a Christmas sale for my friends and followers just enter the code "cHRISTMAS35" and you get 35% off your order. I even made a gallery of some of my most popular prints to help you choose the right gift.

"Take care of the places that take your breath away." 🍃 Reposted from @yellowstonenps – I was so stoked to be a part of the Instameet at Artist Point this summer! Met some very cool people and got to celebrate the National Park Service's 101st birthday with a group of people who truly care for it. 🌄 #parkrangerlife #yellowstonepledge #nps

That awkward moment when you wake up early to shoot sunrise and another photographer is in the spot you scouted the day before. The not awkward moment when we became friends! Hope you're doing well @mitchell5499 ! You obviously have a good eye 😅😉😎

Chipmunk during my hike. A wonder in my world happened on September 11th 2017: I hiked. I really hiked. By myself. I hiked a total of 9 miles, or 14.5 kilometers. And not on pavement, no I actually walked on a ski trail, with many fallen logs, river beds, and rocks. So it wasn't even that easy. But, I did it. And why did I do such a thing? My summer was totally aimed at finding mustelids (any of the weasel family), and along this trail I hoped to find either a pine marten or an ermine. But after a bit more than 3 hours of walking the only animals I saw were tons of chipmunks, some squirrels, and birds. I was totally exhausted, but secretly a bit proud of myself lol. #chipmunk #rodent #prayer #praying #faith #believe #animal #wildlife #yellowstone #yellowstonenps #yellowstoneforever #yellowstonepledge #wyoming #usa #sigma #natgeo #nikon #wildlifeplanet #hike #bearspray #bearcountry

As a run up to Thanksgiving, we’re paying a tribute to those travel resources that have been particularly handy for us this year. Today, we want to thank @nationalparkservice - here’s why. In general, our expectations from the hospitality industry in the United States are much lower compared to other countries. __________________________ We are not travel snobs, but this is a vast country to navigate, and still relatively unexplored. Which makes it expensive, and slightly underdeveloped for travel at times. (doesn’t take away the fact that it’s a beautiful country) __________________________ Visiting @yellowstonenps though, changed our impressions about National Park services in the country completely. The park’s rangers and NPS hospitality staff are immensely hard working. Their passion, kindness and professionalism was visible at every corner. We’re converts, and so thankful for the wonderful experience this year. And we urge you, for whenever you visit the country, to go beyond the big cities and meet the rangers in these national parks.

A sun rising. I was happy to be invited to the early Yellowstone Christmas celebrations on August 25th by some amazing friends. Here, on the Swan Lake flats I saw one of my most spectacular sunrises ever. And later, it was followed by a delicious breakfast. #sunrise #sun #light #amazing #spectacular #prechristmas #hohoho #yellowstone #yellowstonenps #yellowstoneforever #yellowstonepledge #sigma #nikon #natgeo #natgeotravel #visitwyoming #swanlake #swanlakeflats #fog #smoke #beautiful #friends

Throwback to one of my favorite trips ever in Yellowstone NP. In 2016 I won the Chase Adventure Instagram contest by National Geographic Travel. They flew me out to Yellowstone for an amazing once in a lifetime adventure. During that trip, I photographed this epic storm coming in over the geothermal Mammoth Hot Springs. To try to capture all of the scene I took 3 photos and stitched them together into a panoramic. On my lens I used a polarizing filter as well as a graduated neutral density filter to capture the dark stormy sky. I feel like this combination allowed me to record the vibrant tonal variations of such a beautiful place. Fun fact the orange color on the ground is algae and geothermal bacteria. It can live on the special hot pooled terraces which are made of crystallized calcium carbonate. The summit of the terrace is covered with what's called glacial till or sediment. This means that long ago the area had a lot of glacial activity. Glaciers carved the land and helped shape the beautiful landscapes that we photograph today. www.TorvaTerra.com #yellowstone #yellowstonepledge #yellowstoneforever #findyourpark

As I walk past my life, flirtatious clouds beckon, gentle virgin snowflakes kiss my cracked cheeks, aroma of untouched land consumes me, vast expanse of azure blue lake,undulating mountains.. I close my eyes in disbelief for it is too much for naive senses,much powerful than any drugs, supremely sublime; I realize with closed eyes everything mother nature offers us and we take it for granted. We smear Earth and pollute it, we pollute our minds too..but such moments far and few in some fraction make us realize the truth of us.. Universe in a dewdrop.. ephemeral yet everlasting.. #yellowstonenationalpark #grandtetonnationalpark #yellowstonepledge #natgeoyourshot #nature #yellowstonenps #rei1440project #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkusa #optoutside #wildernessculture #earthpics #lonelyplanet #tripoto #googlepixel #nationalparkweek #nps100 #wyominglife #wyomingsky #discover_wyoming #wyomingexplored #landscspephotogrsphy #autumn #fallcolours #himalayanhermits #himalyangeographic
