On our second day at Yellowstone, we got up early to beat the line of cars at the entrance gate. We got into the park around 7 am, prepared for a couple of hikes in the morning, a drive through Lamar Valley (the farthest away from our entrance), and animals spottings. The day did not disappoint – we saw some amazing things! I have too many pictures, so I’m dividing them up. These pictures are of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, including the Upper and Lower Falls.
The first thing we encountered as we entered the park was three bucks, in full velvet, crossing the river. They ignored us completely, but they sure were beautiful!
We also saw a cow elk near the buffalo herd from the day before. The twins had been sleeping the day before, so they enjoyed getting pretty close to the elk!
