The Wild Life

>Last summer I had the privileged of taking a road trip to Yellowstone National Park with my father. Well, I say summer but the truth is it was late spring and if it wasn’t raining it was snowing on us, and it was worth it.

The bonus of going at such an chilly and climatically volatile time of year was all the baby animals. Bison calves were the easy thing to spot, but there were prong horn and elk all over the place and at our campground in the Tetons park a nest of great horned owls. The highlight of the trip was the coyote mother and her puppies running through the sage.

For a city kid seeing coyotes in the wild (rather than on the streets) was a real treat.
