I thought I'd do this blog style and add pictures as I sort and PP them.

We arrived in Gardiner on Saturday about 4PM. We immediately headed to Blacktail Plateau Drive. The last time we were in Yellowstone there were a lot of animals there. This time around it was dead. There were tons of wildflowers though.

We stopped at the last turnout and spotted this black bear about 300-400 yards away.

We decided to head to Lamar Valley. The bison were out in force but this one meandered right towards us and started scratching on a rock.

This black bear had just climbed out of the river when we got to Picnic Bridge. There was a huge crowd on gathered on the bridge.

Very nice photos and narrative Chairs. I thought you were going to say that bison started to scratch your back

When we finally made it into Lamar Valley it didn't disappoint. The views are truly spectacular.

This red dog was stopped near the road. He was giving me the eye as I took his picture.

We turned around and started heading back to the hotel. This pronghorn was stopped right at the edge of the road and posed for us when we stopped about 15 feet away.

We don't get sunsets like this by us.

We saw this coyote just West of Roosevelt. He stopped in front of us and marked the road as his territory.

That concludes day one.

On Sunday we decided to drive down to the Fishing Bridge area. We weren't on the road long when we ran into this guy. He was so close I was afraid he would be inside my minimum focus distance.

IMG_1815 by Chris Attebery, on Flickr


We loved all of the decorations he had in his hair. Gotta look good for the ladies, right?

We stopped at Mount Washburn for lunch and then headed to Hayden Valley.

We stopped in Hayden Valley to take some landscape pictures with the amazing clouds.

I was engrossed when this bull bison started meandering our way. Christine told me it was time to move so I took a couple pictures of him and then backed up 20 feet or so and took a couple more.

We stopped at the overlook where the wolf watchers hang out. We didn't see any wolves on our trip but we did see these bald eagles on the far bank of the river.

From Hayden Valley we drove down to the Mud Volcano area. I really liked the clouds building up over the pools.

From there we drove out towards the East entrance. We found this waterfall just past Eleanor lake.

On the way back we stopped at the Lower Falls area and made the hike down to the brink of the falls. This is one place I wish I had my 16-35 with me. I asked my son to run back to the car but he wasn't biting.

After dinner at the Roosevelt Lodge we headed back to the hotel. We were about 1/4 mile West of the exit of Blacktail Plateau Drive when we saw a crowd. This beautiful black bear and her cub were in the ravine about 100' from the road.

On Monday (7/10/17) we drove from Gardiner MT through Lamar Valley all the way to Beartooth Pass.

We stopped for a while to watch this bison cross the Lamar River.

We also saw this bear butt near Trout Lake.

We drove through Cooke City and stopped at Beartooth Lake.

Thanks Ted. I've been pruning them down from 220 per day to around 16. It's been hard. To put it in military terms Yellowstone is a target rich environment.
