Yellowstone Natl Park waterfall

I went to see Old Faithful, the geyser, but the photos look pretty bad.

I did manage to take some nice shots of waterfalls as I hiked in Yellowstone, though, so I added one of them here.

As I hiked along a trail in Yellowstone, I saw a number of people pointing at the area where I was, across a large field. I got closer to the opening towards the field, and saw a buffalo, about a 100 yards from me, who hadn’t noticed me at all (thank goodness), since it was grazing. What I did see, though, was a man with a camera, across the field, coming towards the buffalo (and me). I had read the material about the animals in the park, so I knew a buffalo could run 30+mph, and did not like to be approached . So I backed away from the opening, and kept hiking.

I don’t get why people who know nothing about wild animals think they can do whatever they want around them? At least the pronghorn antelope are way too fast to do anything but watch in amazement. I saw antelope jumping and running when driving between Tetons and Yellowstone National Park..as well as grazing elk..onwards to Glacier!
