Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge: Wheels

For Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge ‘Wheels’,  here are a few random wheel pics from my travels.

In May 2010 we took a trip to Yellowstone National Park, starting off in Jackson Hole, where we rented a Dodge Durango SUV. Here it is outside the cute chalet where we spent our first night.

When we set off the next day, hubby realised that the power outlets weren’t working, which meant that we couldn’t use our GPS, so back we went to the rental office where it was swapped out for a Chevy Suburban which was very spacious indeed for just the two of us, but who’s going to complain about that? The weather was unseasonably cold for May, and when we arrived at Old Faithful, I noticed pretty icicles on the wheels.

Now for something completely different. A horse and buggy ride around Savannah in much warmer weather.

Last but not least, some ‘choo choo’ wheels in Chattanooga.

Horns in Wyoming

A few years ago we stayed in Jackson Hole on our way to Yellowstone National Park. In Jackson town centre is the George Washington Memorial Park which has four archways built entirely out of elk antlers. There are approximately 2,000 antlers to each arch.

On our travels through Yellowstone we saw many bison, the largest land mammal in North America. The males can weigh anything up to 2,000 pounds and females about 1,000 pounds. They can run up to 35 miles an hour, so it’s best not to have a race with one, as they can quickly pivot and suddenly be turning to face you.

These bison are pure descendants of the vast herds which once roamed the grasslands of the United States and the largest bison population is to be found in Yellowstone, where they have lived continuously since prehistoric times.

For the sake of safety, these photos were taken through the open car window.

Happy Sunday everyone.
