Skywatch Friday – Yellowstone’s Lamar Valley

Bison View-1-Edit

Sorry, not sorry, another post of my trip to visit my Sister Ellen who works at Yellowstone National Park. One day we went to the Lamar Valley in the northeast section of the park. We saw lots of bison, a couple of antelope, and went on a couple of hikes. 


It is a beautiful broad valley with mountains on both sides and it takes a while to get there. Forget about any bars on your cell phone because there are not any to be had. Great news!!

The Lamar Valley is known as a great place for watching wildlife including wolves. My sister Ellen tells me that you have to get up and be in place early to have a chance of seeing them.

Here is a video by the National Park Service about the wolves. 



We went on a short hike but the sun was beating down on us and we wanted to get into the woods.

We saw a couple of fishermen wading in the Lamar River. It looked like they were having a great time.

    I’ll never get tired of your Yellowstone post. I enjoy seeing the Park through your eyes. We had such a good time!

    I loved your photos and the video was interesting, Yogi. We visited Yellowstone almost 9 years ago in Septemeber, and at that time we visited the Lamar Valley but did not see many wolves. We did see buffalo, elk and a bear there. I’d love to spot a wolf next time. I’ve always wished we could see Yellowstone in a winter month with snow on the ground. We are overdo for a return visit!

    Keep the Yellowstone posts coming. These are awesome! Wow, what I wouldn’t give to see a wolf in it’s natural environment! Have a great weekend.

    I love to see fisherman actually fishing rather than a beer in one hand and maybe a rod in the other, lol. That bison shot with the dust coming up is fan tastic, Yogi. Is this the sister that lived in Madtown?
