Recently some of the environmental news has be regarding the delisting of the Gray Wolves in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Hence you can see, I post a picture of a wolf from Denali National Park.

Just a quick note here to say G’day and keep moving. This photo was taken a few days ago, at the Lower Falls on Yellowstone River, near Canyon Village, in Yellowstone National Park.

The weather was pretty un-photography friendly when me and my parents sauntered over to the geyser to await the eruption, and I didn’t think I’d bother bringing my camera, lenses and tripod with me .. the 50 yard haul surely couldn’t be worth it.
