Make sure you get up early enough to watch the sun rise over the lake. It's well worth the effort even on a morning that's not totally clear. You'll still get some great photos.

This lake is so huge and so beautiful, with so many different faces. Some areas are flat open meadow where bison herds ate and ran thundering away from us. Other places the trees come down to the water, and others there is a beach. Very cold water of course; it's the largest high altitude lake in North America.

This is one "taken for granted" gems of the park. As a boy, I enjoyed fishing for cutthoat trout & an random encounter with a bear. But now as a senior, I can appreciate its splendor & beauty. I never tire of taking photos as the colors & reflections constantly change.

I had hoped to go out on a boat ride, but everything was closed for the season (I was there mid-Sept). But it is beautiful to ride along the lake and there's a nice view from the Yellowstone Hotel.

Yellowstone lake seemed so much larger than I expected. There is a lot to do and see in the area, and we were lucky to see some buffalo roaming. Did not do any fishing but it was still a great visit.
