It's a short list of mostly photos. Early in the year I planned to write many posts about various Yellowstone issues but almost immediately lost interest in rewriting what other people have already written.
I'm not doing much writing these days, or spending much time following news of nature and animal stories. There haven't been many blog relevant books offered for review by Amazon this year either--from what I can see from searching their website, there aren't many being published either.
So I'm mostly living a life of either contentment or apathy depending on how you look at it, doing my jobs and enjoying the scenery.
The following list mostly represents my strongest memories as I looked back through the year.
