This is the view from Fishing Bridge, it was really beautiful that day.
I loved the seeing this little splash of yellow among all the green.
We managed to see four different wolf packs. We were watching a buffalo carcass through our scopes when this pack came across the ridge behind us. There were four adults and 5 pups. The pups got scared when they saw all people so they went back up the hill. The 4 adults made their way to the carcass and challenged the grizzly that was there. I ran for my camera but I really didn't get very good shots.
In this photo are two members of the Agate pack. The whiter wolf is the alpha and she is 9 1/2 years old and the oldest wolf in the park. It was really awseome to be able to see her. We ended up seeing 3 different grizzly's on that carcass. We also saw a grizzly with 2 cubs at another location.
When you go to Yellowstone in the fall you get to see these amazing bull elk. They hang out in Mammoth Hot Springs with their harem of cows. You can hear them bugling during the day and sometimes at night. Bugling is the sound them make to call in their cows and let other bulls know this is their territory. Its a really interesting sound to hear. We also heard coyotes and wolves howling too. There really is nothing like hearing a wolf howl in the wild.
