We decided to make our spring trip in June rather than May this year in the hopes of seeing the elk and prong horn calves. However we only saw one prong horn calf and no elk. After assessing the situation, I have come to the conclusion that the hot weather the two weeks before we arrived had resulted in the elk and wolves staying up at higher elevations making sightings far and rare. The cast of players for this trip was too few.
None the less we had a great time anyway and decided to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Yellowstone is gorgeous in spring.
The two most exciting events both involved black bears. The first, a young cinnamon who was chased up a tree by a larger black. The second, Rosie and a larger sow, both with cubs, actually got into a fight when they came to close to each other's comfort zone. That was exciting since neither seemed to get hurt. With all that said, I think we'll stick with May.
