2022—On the Hunt

The “spring” weather in Yellowstone National Park earlier this week was anything but “spring-like.” High winds and blizzard conditions pinned us down for a few hours on Monday so we didn’t get out into the park until after 1 PM. The sun came out intermittently, and by late afternoon we spotted a lone Coyote traversing the edge of Obsidian Creek. While we watched, it found a couple of different spots of interest, probably caches of prey it stashed earlier in the snow. We did not see it pouncing for voles or other critters under the snow although recent storms left a substantial snow covering that was not there when we arrived last week. It was almost like being in Yellowstone in winter but we could drive ourselves in the park.
