Watching Wolves…

On Sunday my husband and I had the opportunity to go on a snow coach, whose name was Rosebud, through Yellowstone Park.  We have been through Yellowstone many times throughout other times of the year but never winter.  We love going to Yellowstone, and the winter version did not disappoint!  Seeing everything under a blanket of snow was truly beautiful.  We seen abundant wildlife and had a wonderful tour guide.  We used Alpen Guides based in West Yellowstone, their classic snow coaches were too cool!  The oldest snow coach there has been in service since 1953….

Like I mentioned above, we were able to see abundant wildlife but the coolest of the two critters we saw were very far away.  Luckily, there were spotting scopes available to look at them close up.  The first critter was a male grizzly, out of hibernation in February which is very rare.  He is very groggy here and a taking a nap under a tree, you probably have to use your imagination to see him here but really he is there! lol…7J8A1537-Edit

The second of the two were….IMG_0237

Two wolves sunning themselves on a distant hill.  You might be able to see the whiter wolf if you squint your eyes real hard, the second one is off to the right in a bit of a hole… I had major lens envy with the people there and their huge prime lenses! lol!7J8A1496-Edit

We seen a lot of other critters that I’ll share later!
