Bear that crossed the road in front of us as we were heading into the park. He stopped long enough
to pose.

In front of waterfall we hiked too. It was a guided hike by the ranger and we hiked
a total of 3 miles in 1.5 hours, we were running almost the whole time it felt like.
we wont take that type of hike before, couldnt really stop and enjoy the forest.
there was bear sign all along the trail.

I wonder what they want to be in their next life because they are so close to getting there. I think a Bison can cover the 15 feet between them in about 2 seconds, I wonder how far they can run in that time!!

Lots of Bison in Yellowstone NP
