Hello all. I hope you had a pleasant Memorial Day. We headed to Yellowstone National Park over the weekend and I thought it would be fun to share some photos by my husband Bill.
Thanks Linda! This area is known as Pelican Creek. the mountains in the background are on the east shore of Lake Yellowstone. This entire area may be flooded soon as the spring run-off raises the lake level.
This coyote was hunting rodents, and from what I observed, was pretty successful.
May brings bison calves. These ones were born recently and some still had their umbilical cord showing.
If its about 7:30 in the evening, it's nap time!
This Uinta Ground Squirrel was watching out for coyotes at about 8,000 feet on Mt. Washburn.
In the Hayden Valley, this grizzly was digging up food and put on quite a show for everyone.
A herd of bison swam the Yellowstone River. They give quite a shake when they climb up on the shore.
This huge bull bison napped in a meadow. Glad I had a 400mm telephoto lens to get this picture. All the animals are in the process of shedding their Winter coat and they look pretty shabby until Fall when they are all sleek and fat again.
This beautiful swan and it's mate was swimming in the Firehole River near Old Faithful.
Whenever we visit the Old Faithful area, we always have to visit the Old Faithful Inn. It's said the be the largest log structure in the world. You can see four stories in this picture and it goes up another story or two above that!
Hope you enjoyed the photos and thanks for looking!
