June 2002, Nature Discoveries, Yellowstone & The Grand Tetons, USA. Martha, Mom, Bob & Gary. Yellowstone ... the very name breathes mystery, awe, and visions of some of the most beautiful scenery on earth. It is a land sculpted by great forces - the fire of thundering volcanoes, and the power of mighty rivers. Although thousands of years have passed since the last eruptions, the landscape still vibrates with the fiery heat that lies not far below. The sheer rock walls and peaks of the Grand Tetons provide a fascinating counterpoint to the Yellowstone plateau.
