Quick Trip Through Yellowstone

Coming back from Bozeman, I made a short detour to pass through Yellowstone.  It was a gray, rainy and snowy day, but there are no bad days in Yellowstone.  Because I was only there a few hours in the middle of the day, it wasn't an ideal wildlife sighting trip.  I didn't see any bears, wolves or moose, but I saw all the usual suspects: bison, elk, mule deer, pronghorn, bighorn sheep and a coyote.  Mari and I are going back in about two weeks for a four-day trip.  I'll get some better pics then.

A gray, but beautiful day.

  1. You can't take a bad photo in Yellowstone!

  2. The pics came out great! Especially considering the weather Mother Nature has handed to us lately. I agree... just no bad days when you are in or NEAR the Park.
