Yellowstone National Park is awe-inspiring; it evokes a sense of timelessness once the rush of the modern world slows its pace inside its borders. Looking across the 132-square-mile Yellowstone Lake, one can almost hear its geological history whispered in the breeze on a cloudless night.
Yellowstone Lake surrounds itself by natural, vibrant beauty. Varieties of wildflowers are rooted along the expansive shore: blue-purple lupine and red-pink paintbrush, yellow pond lily and white geranium. They reach for the sky amid fallen conifers downed by wind, others downed and charred by fire.
