Yellowstone National Park

This is our 2-day trip to Yellowstone on our way back to Victoria after a stay in Winnipeg. The photos start with our ascent up Beartooth Pass in Montana and down towards Yellowstone Park in Wyoming. We camped in Canyon campground, did a circular loop one day and then exited out through Mammoth.
