I went into Yellowstone today with Chuck to check out some of the wildlife. Chuck has lived here in Montana for about 4 years, and knows just about anything about the park, especially the wildlife, He was a fantastic guide. We saw tons of elk and bison, which move down closer to the road in the winter because of all the snow up in the higher elevations. We also saw some wolves, which follow the elk down low as their food source. It is an overcast day here, so the pictures aren't great, but I can asure you the scenery is! It's a real winter wonderland this time of year.

Man, how lucky are you?


I am thinking of coming out there in the next couple of years to do Devils Backbone in Bozeman.

Josh said...

Lucky indeed. What should I do tomorrow? hmmm...Maybe a little snowshoeing in the Bridger Mountains? :)

I'll probably do Devils Backbone this year. Come on out if you get the chance, otherwise I'll give you my trail tips.

Nice pictures!

Jeff said...

Looks cool out there! I'm planning on making a road trip out west after I graduate so maybe I could hit that up.

Wow- Josh wrote a new post! Those pictures are awesome. Weren't you scared seeing wolves? I would be! So I assume you're already living in Montana? I forgot about that move...

Luc said...

Wow, those are some amazing pics, Josh! Thanks for sharing.

Josh said...

Brian,

Thanks!

Jeff,

If you're coming out west, you have to come up this way, it's awesome! Let me know when you're coming, you can crash at my place.


Clara,

I was afraid of getting my status as a blogger taken away, so I figured I had to post :) We saw the wolves through binoculars, they were probably 1000 yards away, you couldn't even see them with your naked eye. Yes, I am in Montana now! It's beautiful out here!

Luc,

Thanks! I'll have to go back on a clear day and get some better shots.
