Day 8, 9 & 10, August 12, 13 & 14, 2016
In my last post, I shared several photos of the gorgeous bison at Yellowstone. Although bison are the most plentiful large mammals in the park, they are not the only wildlife, and I had the good fortune to see many others.
We saw about a half dozen elk, enjoying the “elk candy” grass at Mammoth Hot Springs.
We saw lots of birds, including Trumpeter Swans
We saw some butterflies, but they mostly didn’t slow down enough for a photo…
We didn’t see any bears, but they are around!
And we were treated to the distant sighting of two Gray Wolves. One was black (in the center of the photo) and the other gray. This was the first time I have ever seen wolves in the wild – what an amazing experience!
Yellowstone was an unforgettable experience for me, with my love of animals. I am so excited for my next trip there!
