A surprise at Mammoth Hot Springs – Yellowstone

Young bull elk

I very much enjoyed my visit at Yellowstone National Park. It’s a place everyone should have on their bucket list. I captured this young bull elk at Mammoth Hot Springs. He was just laying there, looking at all of us, and occasionally scratching an itch. lol

I’m working through all the photos. I took quite a few! It was certainly a great adventure spending the day at Yellowstone. Make plans to visit soon!

This weekend I was out of town (again) – this time visiting Elk County in Benezette, PA (near St. Marys). It was an awesome time! We got there in time to hike a little bit before dusk and spotted a bull elk with his cows. The first and third photos were taken Saturday evening. It was not really my intention to get a silhouette but it turned out that way. Pretty neat. The middle photo was taken today – a handsome bull elk among the wild flowers.

I very much enjoy taking day / weekend trips to see wildlife and visit other places. We live in a beautiful country, folks. Get out there and enjoy it!
