Yellowstone Magic

Yesterday we spent a lounging day and visited the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, a wildlife rehab facility that is also sort of a zoo. It is a great way to see some grizzlies and wolves up close, if not personal.

Today we went into the park to see the geyser basins. Along the way we discovered that the animals have come out of hiding. It was a warm day and we took a long hike in the geyser basin. Not many erupting geysers on this visit, but the scenery is beautiful. And, of course, there are the animals. Just before we got back to the car we encountered a coyote on the trail. She sat in the middle of the trail yipping and howling, apparently seeking her mate. There was no answer and she didn’t move. As we were interested in lunch we edged forward, not wanting to frighten her into becoming aggressive. At about 25 yards she moved off the trail to let us by, but kept yelping for some time.

A great day in one of our country’s greatest treasures.

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
