POTD: Roadblock

Roadblock
Yellowstone National Park
2011

We’re in Yellowstone National Park this weekend, roughing it at Mammoth Hot Springs where we have to leave the hotel and walk all the way across the street to the bar to get internet access. At least the animals are more accommodating, walking right up to the car so you don’t even have to get out or use a telephoto lens to get a good picture. Once this guy got out of my way I did go skiing, but strangely enough,while there were scads of big game on or near the road on the way to and from the trail head, I saw none while actually out skiing.

  1. Apparently quite common…the wildlife use the plowed roads to move around…saves energy in the color weather. From a Nature episode featuring Tom Murphy in Yellowstone.
