On the way West from Sturgis I went more southerly than the outbound leg. I went through the Northern portion of Yellowstone. I had left Cody, Wyoming early so as to avoid the crowds but discovered that was not to be. Most of the trip through the Northern portion of the park was through an area burned about 15 years ago. The devastation was complete with the forest coming back nicely. The views were spectacular as a vista but greatly diminished by the fires.
It is well known about the geologic diversity of the park . This rock rubble was a quarter of a mile from where I took the last picture.
