A Failed Fishing Trip Becomes a Wildlife Safari

This last weekend I once again attempted to get on the water for the first time this year, but my merciless enemy, the wind, prevailed yet again on Sunday.  Finding the wind unrelenting as we stopped at spot after spot, we ascended the Absaroka Mountains along the highway that leads to the East Gate of Yellowstone National Park in an attempt to get above the wind.  We were defeated at every stop and never wet a line.

The day became a bust for fly fishing, but turned into a North American wildlife safari as we traveled closer and closer to Yellowstone.  I don't have any photos of trout to share today, but I hope you enjoy the wildlife photos instead.
Disclaimer: All of my pictures were shot with my cell  phone camera and the clarity of the photos reflects this.
See you next week!
