Moose Falls, Yellowstone National Park.

I shot this picture during a short break in a raging hail storm which took place on September 30, 2013. It was my first time driving through Yellowstone National Park and despite the bad weather I had only this one day to do it. In 2013 the government shutdowns were pending and the next day, October 1 would begin the closures of all 'non-national security' offices. None of us really thought it would happen but just in case I went and managed to snag this shot. They next day, every national park did in fact close, and I was among the last few stragglers in Yellowstone just before the gates were shut.
