More animal shots




Lots of geese were everywhere.


This big horn sheep was resting not too far from where we saw the bear.


There are many herds of elk near Mammoth Hot Springs.  It was fun to see the babies.  The rangers said that if you saw a young elk, you might see a bear close behind but we luckily that time we didn't.




Gardiner, Montana is a little tourist town just outside the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park.

This was my world not to long ago.  For other glimpses of places from around the globe, check out My World Tuesday.

More wonderful shots of Yellowstone. Glad a bear wasn't following the young elk. Or at least not too close.

Great animal shots. There's no place like Yellowstone for both animals and landscape.

I love the pictures. We have lots of those Geese here too. I also like the title of your blog it reminds me of one of my favorite Jimmy Cliff songs from when I was a teenager.

You did see lots of wildlife! I stayed in Gardiner once when we went into the park to track the wolves - had the best milkshake of my life there.

For a brief moment, I thought we were going to have a series of geese photos, adding one bird each time. Then "The geese come marching two by two, hurrah, hurrah ..." started running through my brain. I think I need a trip to Yellowstone to clear the fog ...

Hi Loran, You all did see lots of different animals, didn't you??? That Bighorn Sheep is gorgeous.. I've never seen one. I've seen elk in Colorado--but never the sheep.. WOW!!!

Great animal shots.
Hugs,
