Bears and deers in Yellowstone National Park

2015-07-17 16.22.35

From Kemmerer, Wyoming we headed northwest to Idaho Falls for one night. We drove into Yellowstone thru Jackson and The Grand Teton National park ending up at our destination Creek Side Lodge at the east side of the park. We stayed for three nights at the lodge 7 miles form the east entrance to the Yellowstone Park.

What does the fox say? There were four foxes living at our lodge. This fellow had hurt his leg and got medication and food from the owners of the lodge. His name is Freddy, and he was very curious. We also saw deers around the lodge.

These bison walked around by the road a few miles from where we lived. This is outside the park.  They came very close to the road, sometimes they walked in the middle of the road. I can see why they are not afraid of anything. Huge beasts.

Hard to stay the mandatory 21 meters from all wildlife when the bison is in the road. Safest in the car during these encounters.

We also saw two black bears inside the park. Unfortunately our photographer, Lucas hanging out of the sunroof did not see the bears. So in this picture it is more people looking at bears than bears..

We did visit the biggest geyser Old Faitful but did not have the patient to wait for her to blow.

Breakfast ride. None of the other travelers in the extended Reiseselbekk clan were interested i horseback riding, so AE went alone for this activity. Real cowboy breakfast in the mountains.
