Our Last Couple of Days in Wyoming
Our last couple of days in Wyoming were filled with beauty, and some cute animals. We had originally planned to leave on the Monday, so Sunday we went for a nice drive through Teton NP.
I hardly ever see moose in the antelope flats area, but as we were headed towards the main part of the park we saw 5 moose running like their lives depended on it through the flats. They were moving, and something had obviously got them that way.
One cow moose, veered her own way, then these 3 came toward us.
They kept going until they got up the hill, and ducked into a stand of aspen trees. Another smaller bull was right behind them.
After that excitement, we went to one of my favorite places to walk. We heard the elk bugling, and saw a couple pretty far away. But the show that day was this little chipmunk. He was sitting on a log, getting himself dry.
So impossibly cute!!
This short video is the same place, but on a morning I had gone on my own a week or so before. I was using my phone to capture the video, but if you listen close you can hear the elk bugling.
Monday was forecast for snow, so Al said we should wait a day before leaving. I of course thought this was a wonderful idea.
We took a drive up Togwotee pass. There was a lot of snow on the top of the pass, and it was so beautiful. Torrey was pretty thrilled to get out and run around in the snow.
We drove up there because the day before my friend had photographed a grizzly in one of the meadows. We hung out, and watched for a while. Torrey was good at helping us look.
But, sadly no bear for us. We did see some beautiful scenery though. That is one of my favorite areas, and there are hardly any people there.
We left there, and drove through Teton NP in hopes of seeing some wildlife. I guess it wasn’t a wildlife day for us, but the storms coming in and out made for some beautiful landscapes.
I did get my snowy moose shots Monday afternoon, then again on Tuesday morning.
Tuesday before we left, Al took Torrey for a spin with his bike, and I walked to the river with Roxy so we could say good bye.
Next year, more beauty and wildlife next year.
