The great melt of Yellowstone National Park in spring

A verdant, untouched wilderness that is truly a wonderland for the senses. Looking out from a vantage point over the Yellowstone River as it flows through the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone carrying the winter melt water, you experience the pulse of the season. If you position yourself in such a way as to not see any of the road or trail, you immerse yourself in pristine beauty and see Yellowstone just as the early explorers did. In comparison to the size of the United States, this small patch of protected land is a reminder of what was once the richness of this land.

I sat there in amazement, while my companions came up, and after that, it seemed to me that it was five minutes before anyone spoke. ~ Charles W. Cook who first viewed the canyon in 1869.
