We spent a week in Yellowstone in June. My two favorite areas of the park are the canyon area and Hayden Valley. The Yellowstone River looked like a great fishing area in the Hayden Valley... but I think much of the river in the Hayden Valley is off limits to fishing. I wish we were still visiting Yellowstone. It is certainly my favorite place to be.

Another PS....... We haven't seen any Buffalo yet. Whats up with that? There are flashing signs everywhere cautioning their presence but they must be hiding.... I'm gonna try some of the fishing spots mentioned tomorrow. I like this fly fishing. It's more fun than trolling off of the back of a boat. The fish are kinda small compared to King Salmon though. Anyway....... Adios

We have just left Yellowstone and saw lots of buffalo. Also several airstreams. ☺

Several days ago we passed through a large herd crossing the road. Very impressive.

We also saw huge male elk two days in a row.

One of the things we noticed was not only the presence of park rangers near the buffalo herd crossing the road, but also an ambulance just sitting there with lights flashing.

I was dumbfounded by how close people were willing to get to these animals. 😳.

Maggie, I didn't see one buffalo. I did see a herd of Mountain goats by the North entrance though. We'll be in Glacier tomorrow.

Wow, no buffalo! You were just not in the right spot at the right time.

They do seem to congregate, although we saw several huge bulls grazing off by themselves.

We stopped for lunch at a picnic spot, were all set up outside with our friends and Lily when a huge bull was seen wandering toward us through the trees! Yikes!! Took lily inside quickly, lest she provoke an attack, but he just kept right on going. Wasn't even interested in the raw veggies out on the table.

Lily seems to know these animals are not to trifle with, as even when they passed right by the Interstate she just let out a low growl rather than bark as she would have if it were a dog. Good girl, Lily.

In three weeks at Glacier and Yellowstone, we did not see a single bear, although lots of goats and sheep who liked to wander through the campground. I'll get pictures posted one of these days.

When we were at a campground in Waterton, there had been a mountain lion take out a deer there the week before, so lots of warnings. Didn't see any, but kept Lily close.

Between the animals, the mountains, the waterfalls/lakes/rivers, it was a splendiferous trip. Temps were cool to cold, which was lovely when it was 100 degrees at home.

What a beautiful country we live in. . Currently in Moab, Utah, which is magnificent. Going to do Arches and Canyonland NP's.

Buffalo...what buffalo?

We didn't see any buffalo. Only the Bison that tried to hitch a ride with us (LOL). This pic taken on 6/29 not far from Fishing Bridge CG
