Mid-summer is not the best time to visit Yellowstone. It can get a little warm. Much of the wildlife wanders off to the high
country. Crowds are bigger. But since we were going horse back riding in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness, we came anyway. We
spent two days in the Lamar Valley, two days at Canyon and the Hayden Valley, and two days in Jackson Hole and the Tetons.
Below are some pictures from this part of the trip.
Four members of a six member wolf pack in the Lamar Valley. The Alpha female was on the opposite side of us. The four
wolves howled to her and she howled back to them.
