Una Boricua y su Cámara en Yellowstone

August 01, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

On a refreshing morning of May, around 10:30 AM, I started the 8-hour long journey to Yellowstone National Park, from Denver, CO. Days before the (hands down!) “Most anticipated trip of the year”, I packed my favorite snacks, and of course, my favorite photography toys, in an effort to avoid forgetting an important piece of equipment, as it usually happens to me.
 
Growing up in a Caribbean island like Puerto Rico, I grew up accustomed to see “perros satos”, iguanas, wild horses and even turtles on the streets. But I had not seen, black bears, wolves or bisons! So as you can imagine, I was pumped for the possibility to capture any of these wonderful creatures. - And indeed I did, yay!

I won’t lie, it was a long-long drive. 537 miles to be exact! But once we approached the Grand Teton National Park, a few miles prior to Yellowstone, the tiredness transformed into a feeling of inexplicable worthiness. The over 7,000 feet massive peaks were truly breathtaking, really! Although the weather was foggy and cloudy, I managed to capture some really cool shots of the fogged-Tetons. I think my favorite ones of the whole trip, actually. (See below)

A few miles down the road, I made my way into Yellowstone National Park, wow! This park is e.nor.me (huge!) It took me a few days to actually visit all of its eight visitor centers, and most of it’s popular sights. Obviously, I couldn’t see every inch of the park, but definitely felt satisfied by being in front of its stunning landscapes, high peaks, gorgeous wildlife and unbelievable geothermal features that make you feel like if you were out of this world.


So what did this Boricua learn while out and about in Yellowstone? First, it reminded me that there is so much natural beauty in this planet we must do our part to preserve it. Second, always-always carry with you a spare battery pack, especially when out camping in remote locations! And lastly, to always use my photography to share with others the wonders of this marvelous planet we call home.
 
Yellowstone is a MUST-visit location if you are a nature aficionado, an animal lover, or just a human being appreciative of the spectacular world we live in. #MayePhotography
