This morning was rainy and foggy so I used a photo of Lamar Valley taken two days ago. The colors are changing each day and in many areas these beautiful colors are already gone. The recent rains have really removed most of the yellow leaves. When we arrived a week ago the trees had a mixture of greens and yellows. Two days ago it was bursting in yellows and had a touch of orange. This is a wonderful time of the year to be here, but it is time to move along. Our plans have changed and we left Yellowstone today to spend the next few days in the Grand Tetons in hopes to see moose.
Since two roads are closed in the park we had to go north, west and around Yellowstone entering the Tetons from the south. It was a nine hour trip and we were wondering if it was worth it. Well it was! As soon as we pulled into the campground a bull Moose and three females were ripping the leaves from the trees. Then we drove around a bit in the area and saw several herds of Elk. The second photo is of a female Elk eating grass in the river. No photos of Moose yet. By the time we parked and set up they had run off.
