After taking in the sights around the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, it was time to hit the road for our final destination of the day: The Lamar Valley. The Lamar Valley is another wildlife hot spot and is particularly big for wolf-watching. We definitely weren’t visiting the valley at a time of the day when we were likely to see any wolves. And as much as I wanted to see a wolf during the trip, we didn’t take it seriously enough for it to happen. Our next Yellowstone trip will be dedicated to seeing wolves.
En route to the Lamar Valley, we passed by Tower Fall and made the quick stop.
I enjoyed the waterfalls we saw in Yellowstone, but it’s not like Yosemite. Then again, what is?
Even though we didn’t see wolves, we didn’t miss out on wildlife. There were bison herds all over the Lamar Valley, including plenty of baby bison. Loved the baby bison!
In case we had forgotten that this was a wild place, our most interesting find surely reminded us…
Yes, those are bones. We parked in one of the pull-outs along the road to take in the views and observe some bison. And right there in the gravel were these bones. Cool and kind of creepy all at the same time.
We did see the Yellowstone Association’s Buffalo Ranch field campus. I would love to participate in one of the Association’s seminars. It seems like it would be such an incredible experience, and I think it’s the only way that I stand a chance at seeing a wolf. I have to see wolves!
On this trip, we made do with lots and lots of bison.
