Well today is our last full day in Yellowstone. Tomorrow we pack up and then make one last swing through the north end of the park on our way home. When we arrived Sunday the weather was beautiful, with plenty of sunshine and temps in the 70s.
This has been a great trip, much better then last year, and possibly our best outing in Yellowstone. We have seen all of the major mammals, that inhabit the park, except moose.
Michelle took the pic of the pronghorn antelope above and the black bear below. On Tuesday the weather began to turn. It started out sunny on Tuesday then began to cloud up as the day went on. By the time we were on the way back to our hotel it was raining. Wednesday the rain turned to snow and Thursday when we entered the park we were informed that a large portion of the park was closed due to the snow. It was so bad that even the geese went looking for high ground.
Despite the weather we still had a great day on Thursday. Today the weather still looks pretty poor but it seems that the bad weather brings out some of the more elusive animals so hopefully we will have another great day. I will have a lot to post when I get home so stay tuned.
