Utah trees don't seem that much healthier than the ones in Wyoming.

So now I know how all those hornet pics on the interweb were taken (Google Images for "Japanese hornet" to see them). Most of those are of the monstrous Osuzumebachi not our cutey wee kirosuzumebachi which are only the size of the hornets they have in normal countries...

All arches, but not all in Arches National Park. One of them is in Canyonlands.

Green to red - Wyoming to Utah

Tetons

Grand Tetons

Overnight in Pinedale, with its designer wind and squeaky signs, bijou beer brewery and historical log cabins.

Somewhere along the way, in Wyoming or Utah, green turns to red.

My sister-in-law, Helen, has a luxurious camper-van in which she sometimes lives. Curiously, it is closer to the size of the jeep than the RV towing the jeep. Wonder how she manages.

Travelling towards Moab, the rocks get bigger and redder.

Tetons

Probably not actually Tetons, but here is James looking vaguely Teton-wards from Yellowstone Lake.

By lunchtime we were enjoying closer views of the Grand Tetons and spotting wildlife in the grassland.

Suppose I could have saved the third photo in the last post for this set. Instead, here's a raven posing in front of the same mountain.

Mountains

I had not seen them before, but it's true what the TV programmes say - Yellowstone is surrounded by snowy mountains. Having said that, the third photo is a Teton (a few miles south of Yellowstone).

Trees

trees
If trees were going to learn to walk, Yellowstone would be a good place to refine the art. Happy seed sprouts and starts growing in the sunshine. A few years later something shifts underground and the nutrient filled water that fed the roots turns to poison. The poor trees, unable to run away, are forced to suck it all up and it kills them quite quickly.

This one obviously managed to thrash around a bit, even if didn't actually get away.

While this one died so fast it is still smiling.

Of course, I could be wrong. Perhaps those green trees in the background did get up and walk away...
