Gone Fishing (Literally) In Yellowstone

Full disclosure: This is personal. I am going on a trip to Yellowstone (for the first time!), I may or may not literally cast a fishing line, and I am excited.

So I want to share these pictures to make you excited, too. Do you have Yellowstone photos? Add them to our Flickr pool! I may share a few when (if) I get back.

The photos in this gallery were all taken in June by Getty Images photographer Mark Ralston. But I also couldn't resist this one:
