Top Wildlife

Loooong drive down from Minot to Red Lodge. No luck at Medicine Lake with the Longspurs.

BIG disappointment on the Beartooth Highway with no sign of any Black-crowned Rosy-finches at the western summit...too late? No disappointments with the incredible scenery however.

We then moved on into Yellowstone N.P. and things improved immediately on the wildlife front with 2 Grizzly Bears seen at close quarters plus 4 Wolves!!! One bear (a large male) was protecting an Elk carcass that the Wolves had killed and he had stolen! When we left he was asleep on it using it as a pillow.
Staying up at Big Sky, Montana for three days, using it as a base for the park.
Going to see this today...
