Day 5 in Yellowstone

February 21, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Our last full day in the Lamar valley, we set out this morning to photograph some eagles and find some more otters. Shortly after hitting the valley we encountered a mated pair of bald eagles enjoying a morning meal in some cottonwood trees on the Lamar River. Three coyotes played in the valley nearby, filling the air with their excited yips and barks. Alas, despite our best efforts the otters eluded us. However, the fox from yesterday was once again putting on a show near Soda Butte and we spent some time watching her catch and bury her prey. She regally ignored the humans and calmly walked past onlookers and cars as she used the road to move to her preferred hiding spot for her catch. From there we tried one more time to rendevous with otters but were thwarted and headed back to the cabin. We'll try one last time early tomorrow as we start our return trip across the park to Gardner.

I will have MANY more photos to share once i get home and have time to process all the amazing sights. Stay tuned...
