GoHike's Best of 2011 in YNP

Postby gohike » Sat Dec 31, 2011 7:02 pm

Every year I tell folks that, "next year I'll put together a best of collection of photos," but I never do. I also require all of my students to put together their best 20 images from the semester and present them, so I figure I can handle it too.

I posted 20 "best of" images to my blog, below are the 13 shots that happen to be from Yellowstone. The entire collection can be seen here:

Don't forget that I have a gallery filled with five years of monthly trips to Yellowstone that you can look through:
