May 11, Day 11:  You can read the entire blog and view photos on our website. If you enjoy the account, Please . . . share it with your friends. Photos from the trip can be viewed at: http://astilesphotography.com/f390536220 Thanks!  We left the cabins at 6:00 AM and headed into the park.  We only found a few elk as we drove along the Madison and Firehole Rivers.  Drove back to Old Faithful to allow everyone to reshoot it, then north to Norris Junction and east to Canyon Junction.  From there we drove slowly through Hayden Valley, still finding very little animal activity. Decided to head over to the East Entrance since they had just opened the highway. We stopped and had lunch at the Fishing Bridge center, then up into the Absoroka Range, through Sylvan Pass, and down to the East Entrance.  Saw a lot of beautiful scenery but no animal activity.  Returning through Hayden Valley, we found a grizzly feeding on a winterkill about a mile from Canyon Junction.  Stopped and took some photos, then headed back towards the cabins.  Had dinner at the Outpost, which is a great place to eat.  It is nothing fancy, but great service, very reasonable prices, and good food.  I was happy to find that we had been moved to a single, unattached cabin, and looked forward to a good night of sleep.  198 miles  18 MPG

 

May 12, Day 12:  We left the cabins at 6:30 AM.  I had promised the others to take them to Mammoth Hot Springs to allow them to do some landscape shooting.  While waiting for them, I found a Magpie and woodpecker to photograph.  After a few shots, the others decided they were ready to go, so we drove back to Norris, over to Canyon and down to Fishing Bridge.  Did not see any animal activity, so we drove back and stopped at Artist Point to shoot the Lower Falls.  Then we drove back by the North Rim overlooks to allow some more shots, and headed back to the cabins to get packed up and move to Jackson tomorrow.  144 miles  22 MPG
