Treasure Hunt

Emma has wanted to see Big Horn Sheep every since we moved here from Utah.  So today, with no school for her, we took off to find some!  We heard that between Wapiti and the entrance to Yellowstone there were a lot of Big Horn Sheep.  It took us about 2 and a half hours to get there and we were not disappointed!

The sheep are shedding their wool and looked very clumpy.  Emma was hoping she would see one with really large horns, but they all had medium sized horns.  


On our way back, before we got to Cody we came upon this elk herd.  We couldn't figure out what they were doing, they were all in a circle facing outwards like they were protecting something.  We stopped to see if we could tell what was in the center of the circle and couldn't see anything.  When we first saw them we thought they were horses, but quickly realized they were not.  


It was a quick road trip and we had a great time!
