Where to find wildlife in Yellowstone?
Yellowstone National Park’s wildlife can mostly be found in two main areas, Lamar Valley and Hayden Valley. Lamar Valley has been called by many, “America’s Sergenti” for the diversity of species you can see on any given wildlife drive or hike in the area. It’s astounding how much wildlife you can find.
Some examples of wildlife you’ll find in Yellowstone National Park include bison, wolves, moose, elk, pronghorn sheep, bighorn sheep, and the elusive black and grizzly bears. While most of these animals can be found in Lamar Valley (when the timing is right), if you don’t have much luck there you can head a bit farther south in the park to Hayden Valley. Here you will can be treated to huge herds of bison and rolling hills, making for some delightful photo opportunities.
Keep in mind that sometimes you just won’t see many animals though. There are a number of factors at play here like time of day, time of year, noise from other curious on-lookers, and your patience level. Who can think of a more relaxing day than walking around Yellowstone on the look-out for a herd of bison though?!
