September is a beautiful month to visit Yellowstone. A group of us from Spokane drove to Gardiner, Mt. and used it as a base to photograph the many animals that the park has. The bull elk are in rut and gather their harems in the fall. It is a fabulous sound to hear them bugle and see them in the early morning fog. The trip was a great success. We heard wolves, saw coyotes, a great grey owl, lots of elk, trumpeter swans, big horn sheep, and pronghorn antelope.
