We took a fall trip to Yellowstone again this year. My sister Fran joined me for the first week and Lori was able to join me for the second week. The trip had variable, but generally warm weather. The elk were largely absent, but we did see a few distant bulls with harems. Other wildlife was pretty abundant, but as is often the case in Yellowstone, they were pretty distant.

As we were heading back from the Lamar Valley, we came across the group of Bighorn Sheep ewes and lambs. The light was pretty dim, but we stopped and I was able to take quite a few pictures.
