Day 10, 11 & 12, Sunday – Tuesday, August 14, 15 & 16, 2016
Grand Teton is most known for its views of the mountains, and its back-country hiking. Wildlife spotting seems to be secondary, and we certainly found that to be true. While we did find some wildlife, we had way more luck in Yellowstone. That said, here is what we found!
While I believe these were farmed bison, they were bison nonetheless:
These pronghorn were hanging out with the bison. My sister-in-law believed they were imaginary, but here they are!
Least Chipmunks – we saw lots of these at the lower elevations.
Golden-Mantled Ground Squirrels. Although they look like chipmunks, you can tell they aren’t because of the lack of stripes on their heads.
Pika! I saw two when I hiked Inspiration Point.
Birds. We saw several birds – mostly little-brown-jobs, but ducks too. Some of them I couldn’t identify.
Mule deer. I saw this lady on the hill heading up to the summit of Signal Mountain. Beautiful!
I am a wildlife lover, and although not the primary focus at Grand Teton, I was happy to see what we did! I was disappointed to not see a moose though! Maybe another time…
