Sunrise at Shoshone Lake with Wapiti

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
The magic of Yellowstone is endless and unceasing. And the parable of the early bird could not be more fitting as this 5:15 am wake-up call proved to be worth its weight and worms. I'll never forget this morning, sitting on the rocky shore of the lake, the steam rising, wolves howling in the north at a rapidly descending moon, rutting bull elk bugling in the south with their whale-like fertility song in tribute to the flute-playing Kokopeli. Show me a better symphony.

Nature proves once again that when we show up - when we become present and engaged - her offerings are unfailing and unforgettable.
