As promised, I’m posting some pictures of our wildlife sightings while the kids and grandkids were visiting us this summer. Pretty much all of these photos were taken by Sean, Garrett, Blake or Paige. The bison were the easiest to get, as they were everywhere. The most difficult was the wolf. We got lucky and had two sightings with Sean. In fact, Sean also sighted a bald eagle, bull elk, pronghorn antelope, mule deer, and black bear. Only one he missed seeing was a moose.
We had our closest black bear encounter while hiking with Garrett when we came across a mama bear and her cub. That was pretty scary, but really cool. Garrett got lucky and snapped some great moose pics, too. Garrett’s photos also include a bull elk, mule deer, black bears, marmot, bison and the chipmunk. Blake photographed elk and got some great bison shots. Paige got the birds and the pretty lakeside shot of the resting elk.
We never did spot any Grizzly Bears out in the wild. So I’ve included a few pictures from our visits to the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center and Habitat located in West Yellowstone. Magnificent animals.
