Just some pics from this morning's pre-work walk.
A couple killdeer.
Three ravens had gathered on top of Liberty Cap. Took lots of photos but none were that great because of distance and poses. That won't stop me from inflicting you with a few of them.
There's a good sized fire--about 400 acres last I heard--going on in the park now, being fought on the ground and from the air. It's about 7 miles from one of the campgrounds at Yellowstone Lake. A small one was also discovered today near Slough Creek.
And here's the latest totals for bear (which is the only critter I've seen reported on) and human mishaps in the park:
2 by hit & run vehicles
1 by trap door to the head
Might as Well be Dead Bear
1 sent to zoo
2 by motorcycle
1 by drowning while fishing
1 by gun suicide
Humans Sent Flying by Bison
You can keep track of the action via NPS Yellowstone news releases.
