Male elk bugling during the fall rut. Large male elk are known as bulls. Male elk have large antlers which are shed each year. Male elk engage in competitive mating behaviors during the rut, including posturing, antler wrestling and bugling, a loud series of screams which is intended to establish dominance over other males and attract females.

A rainbow appears in the mist of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River.  At 308 feet, the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River is the tallest fall in the park.  This view is from Lookout Point on the North side of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.  When conditions are perfect in midsummer, a midmorning rainbow briefly appears in the falls.

Grand Prismatic Spring (left) and Excelsior Geyser (right).  Grand Prismatic Spring displays a stunning rainbow of colors created by species of thermophilac (heat-loving) bacteria that thrive in narrow temperature ranges.  The blue water in the center is too hot to support any bacterial life, while the outer orange rings are the coolest water.  Grand Prismatic Spring is the largest spring in the United States and the third-largest in the world.  Midway Geyser Basin. Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA. Image #13571

The bisons massive head is its most characteristic feature. Its forehead bulges because of its convex-shaped frontal bone. Its shoulder hump, dwindling bowlike to the haunches, is supported by unusually long spinal vertebrae. Over powerful neck and shoulder muscles grows a great shaggy coat of curly brown fur, and over the head, like an immense hood, grows a shock of black hair. Its forequarters are higher and much heavier than its haunches. A mature bull stands about 6 1/2 feet (2 meters) at the shoulder and weighs more than 2,000 pounds (900 kilograms). The bisons horns are short and black. In the male they are thick at the base and taper abruptly to sharp points as they curve outward and upward; the females horns are more slender.

One of the most picturesque geysers in the world, Riverside Geyser is located in the Upper Geyser Basin. Riverside is a cone-type geyser. Its sinter base sits alongside the Firehole River and its eruptions arc over the river with a forested hillside as a backdrop. Riverside Geyser eruptions are preceded by a one to two hour prelude in which water overflows the geyser cone and flows into the river, typically culminating in some bubbling and splashing from a secondary vent that signals an imminent eruption. Its eruptions last about 20 minutes, with a steam phase following the eruption. Riverside Geyser intervals, which run about six hours on average, are actually distributed bimodally with modal centers about either 5.5 hours (short mode) or 6.5 hours (long mode). Riverside Geyser is viewed from across the Firehole River. It lies about 1 mile from the Old Faithful area on a pleasant trail taking one by many other geysers, pools and the Firehole River.
