thanks, ya'll.  I wrote a trip report back in September, but never posted the pics.  I'll probably bore you with more.

Thanks for posting... and NO they are not boring.  Dog Canyon at the park entrance, the South Rim and Cattail Falls are three classic BIBE views, and those were three very nice renderings.

Thanks again.
Funny... I have a story about that...

Wonderful colors in the sunrise.  Man, I hope there are some clouds when I get there in 3 weeks.   Been watching the web cams at PJ and Basin - so far this week just high cirrus clouds, but you never know till you get there.

You never know when you will check out the basin webcam and find something really cool:
