Got back last night from a three day trip though Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks with some of our family. We had a great time and saw a lot of great things including snow and lots of water. There is still over 400% of snow in the mountains to come down - if it will this year. Here is part of the Teton Range covered with snow. It will be a month or more before we can hike over these mountains.
On Sylvan Pass there is so much snow that the Big-horned Sheep are feeding along the road. This ram has an itch he is trying to get some relief from.
Everytime we stopped to have a picnic, birds would try to join us. Here a Clark's Nutcracker begs for something from the kids. Illegal to feed her - she had to find someone else or crack open some nuts.
Grizzly and Black bears are abundant this year. We caught this young grizzly feeding on the millions of midge flies hatching on Yellowstone Lake.
It was a beautiful three days with lots of sun. We caught this bull moose resting in the shade of some aspen as the flies bothered him.
But the most enjoyable time was watching some of the grandkids enjoy the hikes, picnics and other outdoor activities.
