It is difficult sometimes to get a perspective for how large these cliffs are. Look for trees to get a sense of the enormity!
I loved how the land could be dry and empty, then all of a sudden you would see a grove of trees. Most often it was along a river.
We were driving in to Yellowstone on the 4th of July. That was probably our biggest bummer-we knew we were missing out on the celebrations and fireworks. If we had known before what we know now, we would have planned on camping in Cody, WY, that night and going to see the rodeo. As it was, we stopped for gas and kept on trucking.
Perspective again...huge house looks tiny, mountain in the background, dotted with trees, is enormous.
Could you imagine building a road up this thing then driving on it in the winter? You probably wouldn't. This mountain looks like its own topographical map!
