Nice The first one is great. I will be there in 11 days. Can't wait. Sounds like this year is great for wildlife.

That's an incredible day! I have often spent a week or more in the park, and don't think I've ever seen more than 11 bears in a week-long visit. This time of year rocks, don't it?!


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Thanks D.C., yes Tom I have been going to Yellowstone for 35 years quite regularly every year, and this was by far the best day of wildlife activity I have ever experienced up their. In fact its Monday morning 4:10 a.m. and heading out the door to go again today.

Best post ever! (If your right about the wildlife!) Leaving in 16 days (plus a 3 day drive to get there). Save some of the wildlife for me! :D

Fishhawk, I think I have a shot of that same bear (the top one). Was that Sunday night at Fishing Bridge? You were a bit closer though.
That was the best two day period of wildlife viewing I've ever experienced at Yelowstone. Bears everywhere! We watched one sow play with a stick in a meadow from about 90 yards for over 40 minutes. The next day we watched two Grizzlies MATING for over a half hour but it was a half mile away. Even the bison were full of themselves - one huge bull wanted to take on our motorhome.
I have another shot of a Grizzly standing up on the beach with Yellowstone lake behind him.
We are lucky to live so close that we can go almost anytime we want.
