Great shots everyone.  All we saw Monday was half the parks population of buffalo.  We can share some buffalo shots if you like.  However I'm sure most of you have many of your own.  On Tuesday, we drove through the Lamar Valley to Cooke City and back.  Saw a few things that haven't been posted yet.  On the way, we saw a young eagle enjoying a morsel on the highway.  Didn't know what it was until it took off.  The feathers on it's head were just starting to turn white.  Unfortunately we only got one shot.  Coming back from Cooke City we saw some mountain goats that looked like white dots on the side of the mountain.  Maria used her new Nikon P610 which has an electronic zoom.  They're a bit fuzzy but identifiable.  The P610 has a 60x zoom and it really requires a tripod to use effectively at max range.  We also saw what we thought were two wolves which looked a lot like your Coyote Kim.  A bit later we got a few snaps of that black bear enjoying the remains of the carcass.  We finally spotted what appeared to be a young grizzly which made our day.  Other than that, a few elk and prong horns.  Pix to follow.

Gary,

I saw Maria's shots of the mountain goats already on Facebook and am hugely jealous as we have never seen them here. Kudos!

(Tripods are your friend - how I got the good bear on carcass pics...)

Rally go-ers!

Who has a shot of Bullwinkle?

We are doing really well, but where's the moose?

Gary,

If you have not sorted it out by tonight, Jeff (of Jeff and Anita) was having a similar issue. Bring your Mac over if you need to and we'll see where the disconnect is!

Thanks Kim.  I've had the problem before.  First time I missed one pix that was more than 350 kb.  Next time I don't know what happened.  But persistence pays off.

The Lamar Valley Ranch. Thought I'd better post a landscape since we've been mainly all about the animals.  :D

We have never seen the bison own the Mammoth area like Larry's pics indicate! The elk must have been torqued!

Good stuff, Larry!

Folks, stop at the Sheepeater Cliffs pullout - the marmots are extremely entertaining and very photogenic!

Not many pix for Thurs, since we were in the Bison jam for an hour 45, or so.

We thought we were near the front -- there were more out of sight ahead.

Bison passing us.

Finally near the front.

An anxious crowd awaits the eruption.

Finally...

I can usually figure out what the international graphics are supposed to depict, but what the heck was that one of someone perched on top a of toilet supposed to mean?

We left at 6:00 am this morning to head to Lamar Valley and the wolf den that can be seen off Slough Road. It was a good thing we left so early since the two adults and three pups were pretty active for only 20 minutes after we got there. No pictures because they could only be seen well with spotting scopes.

One of the other advantages of getting on the road early is the mist that wreaths the river and thermal features. The first is the mist against the mountains while the second are just two little fumeroles by the side of the road. They are particularly visible at 33 degrees! The little one on the right also gave a deep drumming sound. I tried to capture it on my iPhone, but it was too low in frequency. It was too faint to hear if there had been any cars driving by.
