Yellowstone in August Photo Gallery by Dave Shumway

Take advantage of the mountain passes as they are cooler, less crowded and at the peak of summer's beauty.

August in the park can be full of many things: flowers on both Beartooth and Dunraven Passes, maturing fox,coyote and wolf pups in the meadows, or simply the promise that the crowds will soon subside and snow will come again.

I take advantage of the mountain passes as they are cooler, less crowded and at the peak of summer.
