Ron used his Canon 40D DSLR camera for the  Images 8xxx series, and Fran shot the Fuji HS10 bridge camera for the 4xxx series images.  We enjoyed seeing Yellowstone and Grand Teton Parks in the fall, when the crowds were far smaller than during the heavy summertime.  We had some rain showers, but mostly comfortable and colorful days.
