I love animals and am always thrilled to see them in the wild.
I saw this herd of Roosevelt Elk at Dosewallips State Park on the Olympic Peninsula.
I watched from a safe distance while they were feeding and this handsome boy reminded me it was the right course of action.
I enjoyed these traffic-stopping Bison (more commonly known as Buffalo) at Yellowstone National Park. Don’t be fooled into thinking that because they are abundant in the park they are tame. They are not. They let us visit them in their habitat and it is wise – even imperative – to always give them the right-of-way.
I saw these fearless, nimble-footed Desert Bighorn Sheep inside the South Rim of the Grand Canyon where they were completely at home.
Last but not least, I was happy to see this Grizzly Bear at Glacier National Park.
Happier still to see him from the safety of our truck.
I’m thankful there are still places these beautiful animals are allowed to live wild – mostly in preserves and national parks which demand protection.
