A Photographer's Journey Through Yellowstone

The Madison River always strikes me as a placid river -- a safe place to stop and rest by. Even in the spring when every other river is a roiling, raucous cascade, full of rapids and boulders, narrow canyons and steep drops, the Madison maintains its dignity and gives the feeling that you can manage it somehow. This scene is typical of the quiet bends and tranquil views that you find as you travel along its banks.
