Lamar Valley, located in the northeast corner of Yellowstone National Park, is beautiful, wild and largely untouched. You can observe many kinds of wildlife--pikas, mountain bluebirds, ravens, marmots, antelope, mountain sheep, mountain goats, deer, elk, bison, foxes, coyotes, wolves and bears, and that's all I can think of at the moment! Granted, I observed these while making nine to ten crossings of the valley, at all times of the day. All of these were observed from the
road with and without binoculars. The valley is breathtakingly beautiful on its own--the spaces are
vast, the valleys enclosed by mountains near and far, that ring the park. Be aware--this trip I saw a wider range of animals than I had ever seen there before, perhaps because my trip was early in the season and the animals were migrating from winter to summer feeding grounds. Still, the valley is so breathtaking in its vastness! And if only elk and bison were seen no visitor would have any right to complain. The animals are wild and free and have little interest or fear of humans. Humans must respect the animals and stay in there vehicles, and if you exit your car--
please follow the rangers instructions--and respect the animals space limits!
