First spring trip to Yellowstone. I had a great time and saw wonderful sights. The wildlife viewing and photographing were superb. The weather was cold and snowy for most of the trip. I had an absolutely wonderful time.

Since I could not get to the Lamar Valley, I went over to Fishing Bridge via the Hayden Valley. I saw a grizzly bear sow with 2 cubs in the Hayden Valley.

When I got to Pelican Creek, east of Fishing Bridge, I found a grizzly sow with a Cub Of the Year (COY). It was spectacularly close and a highlight of my trip. I took over 1500 pictures of them!
