After leaving the town of Mammoth on September 21st, we continued on over the top of the upper loop, toward Tower Junction.
A lone buffalo strolls down the center line of this high mountain road, making it difficult for traffic from either direction to get around him.
After getting around the buffalo and through construction delays around Tower Junction, we continued on to the Canyon area, this time to enjoy the views of Lower Yellowstone Falls and the canyon from the South Rim.
From the Canyon area, we then headed back toward the West Entrance Road, where we hoped to enjoy some elk viewing on our way back to our lodging in West Yellowstone.
These "ducks in a row" were at one of the elk viewing areas along West Entrance Road.
We did see lots of elk later that evening, but that will have to wait for a future post. Stay tuned!
