Yellowstone Lake

Scene at Yellowstone Lake, captured in May 2009

Yellowstone Lake

is the largest body of water in Yellowstone National Park, The lake is 7,732 feet (2,376 m) above sea level and covers 136 square miles (352 km²) with 110 miles (177 km) of shoreline. While the average depth of the lake is 139 feet (42 m) its deepest spot is at least 390 feet (118 m). Yellowstone Lake is the largest freshwater lake above 7,000 feet (2,133 m) in North America.

In winter, ice nearly 3 feet (1 m) thick covers much of the lake, except where shallow water covers hot springs. The lake freezes over by early December and can remain frozen until late May or early June.

Hi my friends,

Thanks for your comments on my post a day before.

Dave and I, we had not such a great day yesterday. We spent again some hours in the emergency room. Dave felt VERY bad again. Now, we got new pills, new inhalers and I know, it will be better for the next some days - if there would be no nights. In the night his terrible cough came back again and he could not breath well. And, I ask myself if this will be good ever one day at all? I cannot see my husband suffering so much and it seems no one of the doctors are able to help him!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Susanne,

Thank you Yvi!
wie ich sehe, hast du dein avatar geaendert. Bist du das im Foto? Und wo in der CH wohnst du eigentlich?

Yvi said...

Hi :-)

Ja das bin ich...mochte das andere Foto nicht mehr sehen!

Ich wohne in Pratteln, das ist ca. 10 Min von Basel entfernt...


Susanne49 said...

Ja, ich kenne das mit dem nicht mehr moegen...nur bin ich zu lazy um es zu aendern :)

Ich fragte dich deshalb, weil ich den Namen deiner Provider-ID immer von einem anderen Ort aus erhalte. z.B. Gland, Richterswil,Huttwil,Zurich and so on... ich fragte mich, ob du denn jeden Tag an einem anderen Ort bist. Bist du das?

Schreib mir doch auf - it's easier ;)
