Images from Yellowstone in 1988

It's hard to believe it's been 25+ years since the 1988 fires burned 793,880 acres or 36 percent of total park acreage of Yellowstone National Park.

These photos taken during that summer are a small window into the past. What have we learned since then, what is the same, what is different? We hope these photos will help you contemplate these questions. If you want to share your thoughts, head over to our Facebook page and post a comment or two.
