Yellowstone: Photo-Wildlife "safari", mid-June 2011 ”

Yellowstone: Photo-Wildlife "safari", mid-June 2011 ”
I am looking for best advice and suggestions for a mid-June 2011 10-night vacation with a view to the possibilities of photography / riding / camping / canoeing, but most of all wildlife. If possible, I’m looking for as secluded and "off-the beaten path" experience as possible. The absolute focus is on the environment and eco-system and natures interactions.
I'm a frequent safari go-er, tented camps and fly-camping in Botswana, South Africa & South Tunisia. I'm also a very keen ocean cruising yachtsman, & happy to live basic.
Since a little boy, I have been fascinated by the geology / geography / flora & fauna in YNP and have, at last the ways and means to go.
Whilst I am happy to be self-guided, I would prefer local experts to bring the place to life. I’m all for seeing the main sights, but it’s really the wilderness and wildlife bit that attracts me.
The only slight draw-back is that I would be unable to handle heavy, long-distance trekking, but more than able to handle a 4-hr stretch on foot any one day.
Please assist and many thanks for any advice and help.

When it comes to elk and bison, they are seen all over the place, including parking lots. But take a trail a quarter of a mile from almost any parking lot and you will be by yourself.

Kylie, You sure have been digging up a LOT of old post to spam about you're off-the-beaten path animal photography! This post is from 2011!
