This statue of a grizzly bear is in the center of the main street of West Yellowstone, WY.

On the way into the park to search for wildlife, we spot a car stopped in a turn out with the people looking into the woods. This couple from Italy were watching mule deer. At least two of these deer have collars and radio antennae.

There were ducks and geese and a solitary mule deer in the river. The mule deer then crossed the river. Note the collar and radio antennae on the deer.

These three mule deer were between the parking area and the highway and were not startled by us.

We stopped at the Paint Pots. It was a long walk. Jan dropped out at about 1/3 of the way there and returned to the car. The steam made it hard to see any color in most of the hot springs. I did not climb the stairs.

We stopped at the Roosevelt Lodge to call the auto repair facility. This tour bus was parked out front.

There was a stage coach taking people on tour.

We stopped for a couple of buffalos that ended up crossing the highway causing the traffic to get stopped.

A typical mountain stream.

We finally found what we were looking for along the Lamar River valley.

This is a pronghorn. The only one we saw.

These .buffalos were in the middle of the Lamar River near the pronghorn

Roosevelt's Tower.

On our way out of the park, we encounter another pedestrian walking on the wrong side of the highway.

We found some rafters on the Gallatin River rapids.

Jan took this picture with her cell phone as we drove toward Bozeman, MT.
