Yellowstone National Park


Terrace Mountain at Mammoth Hot Springs is the largest known carbonate-depositing spring
in the world. The most famous feature at the springs is the Minerva Terrace, a series of travertine
terraces. The terraces have been deposited by the spring over many years but, due to recent
minor earthquake activity, the spring vent has shifted, rendering the terraces dry.

Hot springs terraces with an active steam:
All terraces in Mammoth are almost dying due to the changes in groundwater level fluctuation in the adjacent region.

Active hot springs terraces were observed at the time of 1960s. This photography was taken by Dr. J. Miyamoto in the summer of
1962.

(R) Rustic Falls is located at the entrance to Golden Gate Canyon


The name comes from the color of the rocks, some of which is due to native lichens.
Golden Gate Canyon was named in 1883-84 when the first stagecoach road was built through it.
It was most likely named by someone on the construction crew or by an early tour operator.
The bridge was originally built in 1885 of wood. The first concrete bridge was built in 1901,
widened in 1934, and totally rebuilt in 1977.

log lobby, flanked by long frame wings containing guest rooms. The inn is a prime example of
the "Golden Age" of rustic resort architecture, that harmonized with their natural environment.

during the winter season, at a different location.

From and To The Jackson Hole International Airport

It is located entirely within Grand Teton National Park. It has come the third in a global poll
of the world favorite-scenic airport landings, by the private jet-hire-booking network.
The security-check for air passengers is very severe at this airport. No-smoking sign was
found inside of Jackson Hole Airport. However, a frequent announcement was conducted
to prohibit smoking in the airport terminal.

イエローストーン国立公園への訪問は1962年初夏と初秋、1974年夏、そして今回、2012年6月と4回目である。
50年前のイエローストーンは人影も少なく素晴らしい自然を独り占めした感があった。今回はトイレなど
公共施設の充実には感嘆したが、以前とは全く比べ物にならないほど観光客が増えていた。1960、1970年代には
日本人を含め、東洋人には全く会うことはなかったが、今回は中国人団体観光客の多さに圧倒された。
個人客はそれなりのマナーを,ある程度わきまえているが、他国に習慣に不慣れな団体客は困りものだ。
英語でその土地の人や観光客と会話を交えることなく、自分たちだけで大声で話している。30分以上も前から
噴泉を見ようと待っている人々の前に座り込んだ時などは、さすがに注意を受けていた。

旅行の本当の楽しみは、そこにいる人々と交流し、その大自然を分かち合うことと思うが、それを理解するまでには、
中国人はあと10年か20年かかることであろう。対照的にアメリカ人の心の優しさは今も筆者のこころに深く
刻まれている。にこやかに山の遊歩道で挨拶し、雪道で手を差し伸べてくれた人。タワーフォール真上の岩山に
山羊の親子の群れがいるとき、自らの望遠鏡をためらいなく「どうぞ」と差し出してくれた若い女性などなど、
心温まる思い出でいっぱいである。

帰路、オークランド空港経由、サンフランシスコに向かったが、そのときの機内放送の一幕。スチュワーデス
「皆様、これから離陸いたします。この飛行機はエート、どこへだったけ??」、・・一瞬無言。乗客が一斉に
「オークランド」「オークランド」と叫ぶ。「あ、そー、オークランドに向け飛び立ちます」・・言い終えると、
笑いと和やかな空気が機内に広がる。シートベルトサインが消えるとスチュワーデスは乗客とチェスゲーム。
米国でこそ見られること。
