Yellowstone Isn't All Geysers!

Forest fires in Yellowstone break up the lodgepole pine monoculture and open up land for other plants and animals.

We spent last night at ghost town of Bannock, MT, and didn't see single ghost!

This morning we dug for quartz crystals at Crystal Park, and now we're in Missoula, on our way towards Glacier National Park!
