The following is part of a series of posts about the trip Wayne and I took to Yellowstone National Park in 2009.
It's not all bison at Yellowstone. Everywhere we went we saw a variety of wildlife including elk and mule deer...
and even a coyote making his way across the valley.
The Fishing Bridge campground had bison filing right through the parking lot, but Wayne was just as happy sitting outside the camper and hand feeding the chipmunk peanuts. I kept telling him he shouldn't feed the wildlife but he wouldn't listen to me.
When we were exploring the Lamar Valley we came across these mules all packed and ready to go, probably for a guided fishing trip. I thought they made a nice composition. It got me wondering what it would be like to see the landscape from horseback, but since I haven't ridden in 30 years I'll probably stick to hiking.
Down by Yellowstone Lake we saw a bald eagle, and it was pretty easy to spot fish in the Yellowstone River too. The only thing we didn't see was bears and wolves. Have to leave something for the next trip, right?
Well, that wraps up my series of posts about Yellowstone. We didn't do any hikes except up and down a few of the popular viewpoint trails at the Grand Canyon. I have a book on my Amazon wish list of the hikes in the park and look forward to getting back there and trying some of them out!
Linking up to Saturday's Critters. While I was catching up on Eileen's blog I caught a post of hers about Pic Monkey's website which answered the question of how everyone was doing those photo collages. I'll post about my cameras I tested using collages tomorrow!
