Yellowstone Lake in June


Yellowstone Lake in June

Yellowstone Lake, in the middle of Yellowstone National Park, is the largest high mountain lake in North America. It is over 400 feet deep and in some areas at the bottom the temperature is close to boiing. In the spring the banks are bright with wildflowers and the water almost turquoise, a great place for a picnic. Or a nap.
