Yellowstone Wildlife

On our trip to Yellowstone, we like most people, were constantly on the lookout for wildlife.. We were pretty  lucky!

Mule deer… (oops, guess it’s a cow elk!)

We had to stop to let this black bear cross the street…

Then we caught site of this grizzly…

A little further down the road, we saw a crowd watching the bushes…

And listened to instructions from the park ranger, warning us to just slowly drift  away to our vehicles, if this adult black bear decided to cross the street toward us…he didn’t!DSC_0312

We did see another grizzly up on a hill, but I couldn’t get a picture quick enough..

Proghorn Antelope…

We didn’t get to see any Moose,  so we will be searching when we return, however we were very satisfied with what we did see….

You were very lucky seeing the bears. We've been there twice and never saw bears. Moose, yes. Keep looking. Great pictures. You're right, pictures just don't do the park justice.

Great pictures and you sure were lucky to see all those critters in one day.

Your mule deer just might be a cow elk though.
