I last wrote from West Yellowstone.  From there I moved on to Dubois, Wy and then to Buffalo. I had poor luck in and around Yellowstone with wolves, only seeing them my first couple of days in Lamar Valley.  Black bears also were rarely seen, unlike prior years. It is possible it had something to do with the heavy haze in the valleys from the Canadian wildfires.

Grizzlies, however, seemed to pop up everywhere, and I had some exceptional luck both in Hayden Valley in Yellowstone, and near the Togwotee Pass between Dubois and the Grand Tetons.  In the Hayden Valley I was able to watch the bear known simply as #864 with her year-old cubs for several hours over 2 days.  The cubs were constantly wrestling each other.    On Hwy 26 West of Dubois the two young grizzlies I photographed on opposite sides of the continental divide may have been the offspring of the bear known as Felicia which I photographed with cubs a few years ago.

From Buffalo I spent hours in the high Bighorn Mountains finding moose and mule deer, both in the process of losing their winter coats, in the long valleys with willow covered creeks.  Finally, common birds can make wonderful pictures when in great settings.

Anyway, the photos below are mostly Grizzlies.  Enjoy.  Dave
