It was supposed to be a relatively clear day, but Yellowstone had other plans. Which happens a lot. There was a decent snowstorm earlier in the week, and I think that may pushed some of the wildlife out of Hayden Valley to lower elevations. That’s not to say there wasn’t anything to see, it just took a lot more patience.
Back at Madison for the evening. What a difference in the weather! My car thermometer reported 60 degrees at the campsite. It was nice not bundling up so much this time.
After making camp, I’ll go park at a turnout somewhere along Madison River to eat my sandwich. There was an unidentified K-9 wandering through and bison/elk in the area. Some red dogs starting to show up in this area as well.
Had some good bear and wolf sightings this past Saturday in Hayden Valley. Camped in Madison Friday and Saturday night.
