Trip Report Yellowstone and Grand Teton May 2016

Jump to last reply

Here are my photos from the second week in May in Yellowstone and GTNP share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=0AZNnDlk5YtmbMyA

Our primary interest was wildlife viewing and we spent 4 nights in Gardiner MT, 1 night at Old Faithful and 2 nights in Jackson, WY. It was 80 degrees the day we arrived in Gardiner and snowed two days later. We lucked out with the weather as several days of forecasted thunderstorms never materialized and the snow day was gorgeous and blissfully peaceful.

Lots of bison with calves everywhere. Bears were out at all times of day all along the northern road through the park. We got out early each day to avoid the worst of the bear jams. We saw wolves twice at the den at Slough Creek but from a far distance. Just south of the Moran entrance of Grand Teton we had a very lucky wolf sighting. One crossed the road in front of us, jumped a fence and went into a field with some bison. Our favorite sighting was of a mousing fox near the road on the Beartooth Hwy.

Our only previous trip to Yellowstone was in winter and we weren't able to drive past Cooke City. The Beartooth was open for 17 miles past the intersection with Chief Joseph Hwy this time. The scenery was breathtaking and we need to go back and do the drive when the road is fully open. This was our first time in the Tetons and we loved it and wished we had an extra day or two here. Except at bear sightings along the main road, GTNP was also much quieter than Yellowstone.
