Some (Hopefully) Friendly Neighbors

Living in a National Park has a few downfalls, but has many perks!
For one thing, I have some pretty neat neighbors! These photos I took out my back window.
Some I took through my binoculars. Most often my “neighbors” are out behind the fence line you see in the photo below.

No wonder I have such trouble focusing on my programs!

Some days it’s a little difficult to leave my apartment due to some neighbors not recognizing they can be in the way.

I can’t complain though!

  1. I love your photos…it must be wonderful working at Yellowstone. I’m heading out there in September and hope to see some bison and grizzlies since they’re among the few large North American mammals I have yet to see in the wild (I think caribou and musk ox are the only others). I’m really concerned about crowds at Yellowstone, however. I want to visit far enough out of season to avoid large groups of people, but not so far out of season that weather is bad. I figure going out early in the morning and in the evening will help, but do you think late September would be better than early September? Or is early September (after Labor Day) relatively crowd-free?
