Last week’s wolf and bear safari was an extremely successful weekend of wildlife watching throughout Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. We were able to find many grizzly bears, black bears and a solitary gray wolf. Although these predators were the focus of this excursion, we also had great sightings of bighorn sheep, moose, river otters and many other birds and mammals.
The surprising theme of this excursion turned out to be Wildlife Swimming Across Rivers with sightings of a wolf swimming across the Lamar River and both coyote and grizzly swimming across the Yellowstone River. This image shows a coyote braving the cold waters of the Yellowstone River on Saturday.
