Yellowstone National Park

IMG_3263We headed down into Yellowstone again, this time toward the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, which is a region we had not previously explored.    We were able to watch a black bear and her cub meander through a field of flowers looking for tidbits, totally unperturbed by the hordes of onlookers.  



We even saw a badger which none of us had ever seen in the wild before


We were up at about 8500 ft and the wild flowers were amazing

  1. I guess Summer is the time to see a lot of wildlife… including the hordes? I don’t recall anything other than moose, bison and elk on my trips. It looks like you are having wonderful weather!

    So much wildlife. You picked a good place to be at this time of year. Maybe the best weather in the country.
