Yellowstone

The information in these pages comes from several resources as well as personal observations. I carry a copy of T. Scott Bryan's book with me on most visits and I have written my observations in the margins. It is the best overall reference for the terminally struck observer who wants more than the normal tourist. The Nature Trail Guides published by The Yellowstone Association have good maps and useful descriptions of major features designed for the average visitor. The references used in this page are:
