I was in Yellowstone for four days last week. Never enough time but boy can you see a lot in a short period.
Saw – Bison, Elk, pronghorn, bighorn, coyote, fox, great horned owl right at the visitor center had a nest got two babies in a tree, grizzly w/cub, black bear w/3 cubs, Stayed in Gardner 5 miles north of the north entrance. Great place to stay if you don’t want to be close to Old Faithful. But being there for critters, the north side is the place to be. The lodge at Canyon Village is also a good location and looked brand new and had just opened this past weekend.
