In September I went to Montana to visit some friends who live in West Yellowstone. Yes, live there. They don't visit, they're not part of the hordes of tourists that go through Yellowstone National Park every year -- they live there. For me, there is no place on earth more peaceful than that part of the country. The wind whispers through the high trees, you can't turn your head without seeing or hearing some form of animal life, and there is just an overall feeling of peace and calm there.
Here are some photographic highlights from the trip.
