Our first memorable experience was meeting up with three beautiful bull elk. Here are two of the three in velvet.
Mud pots are not that interesting to me, unless some cousins are walking in front of Grandad enjoying the experience of the mud pots together.
We also saw a wolf - too far for any pictures - and four black bear. Here is the first one we saw.
The day ended watching a cow elk cross the Madison River followed closely by a new-born calf. At times all you could see was the calf's ears sticking out of the water.
Just another wild day in the life of this Idahoan. And of course, we saw a lot of buffalo and people.
