I'd like to thank Denalicat for some of the best advice I've received lately. We had planned on camping in Lamar Valley for three months before our trip date. I was reading trip reports before we left and it sounded like people weren't having much luck with wildlife. Denalicat convinced me to stick with my plan and not pay so much attention to other people’s experiences. Great Advice! In our three days in Lamar Valley we saw Buffalo everywhere, Antelope, Mule Deer, Grizzlies [A lot] and even wolves. The wolves were far away so I didn't get any pictures but, people were very gracious in letting us view them through their scopes.
If you are just driving through Lamar Valley in the middle of the day chances are that you aren't going to see much but if you can be there from 7am to 9am and 5pm to 8pm I think you will have good sightings.
I'd also like to thank a man named John B. [I'll withhold his last name for privacy]. When we got to Slough Creek campground at 1030 in the morning they were already full. John called us over to his truck and offered us his campsite as he sleeps in the back of his truck. He wouldn't accept payment "Not even beer that we had bought :-] All he said was pay it forward.
I have included a link to my picture sharing site so you can see what Yellowstone and Grand Teton have to offer. Click on one of the scrolling pictures and you will be given an option to view a slideshow. http://jeffhoover.shutterfly.comEdited: 29 September 2013, 16:58
