This is the Lamar Valley, between the Yellowstone Institute and Soda Butte. The land widens out here a bit with more meadow on either side of the river. Whenever there is a storm or any kind of weather change you get fast-moving clouds that allow the sun to break through and light up the valley floor in an ever-changing combination of light and shadow. Here the rich, sensual emerald colors are brought out.
