First trip into Yellowstone this year
We finally got to see baby buffalo, a baby elk, and a grizzly. Our friends, Howard and Jeanette and Nathan, were with us. The baby elk was the biggest treat for us. S/he was hiding in the trees in the middle of a board walk around the geysers at Lake in the park. Mom was close by, and would not leave the area, so that was our tip off to watch for more. The baby could not have been more than a day or two old, with wobbly knees and all. The grizzly was sighted later that day with Brian's scope, quite a distance from the road. We also saw a moose and an elk at the cabin that week. A good time was had by all.
