Always safety first around bears!

so proud of this shot — now in my top five SURREAL life moments

Yellowstone is wildly diverse and insanely beautiful. Forests, bogs, hot springs, geysers, fumaroles, mountains, waterfalls, rivers, lakes - all together in one GIANT and gorgeous park. #yellowstoneforever #adventureisoutthere

Springtime in Yellowstone #breathtaking

I was just thinking about the luxury of living in Montana and being an outdoors-individual, all of the things that I take for granted every single day because they are so ingrained in to our way of life. 🐻 While driving through Yellowstone National Park I found myself irritated with the out-of-staters clogging up the two lane ‘highway’ to look at elk and bison. You see so many of them going through the park that in the moment I was frustrated that these people were slowing down my journey for something innocuous to me. Because I get to see them all the time (except during hunting season, when I have a rifle and a tag – then I never see them). Sure, they are neat, but unless a massive bull is standing pristine on the horizon line, I’m less interested. 🐻 The bison, ugh, the bison…. They are to Yellowstone what pedestrians are to downtown Seattle. They are always walking across the road at inopportune times, pooping and 100% unaware of the time schedule you are trying to keep. Sounds just like Seattle peds, right? 🐻 Living here I am blessed, fortunate, to be surrounded by jaw-dropping beauty. Placid alpine lakes, jugged cliffs, goat trails weaving up hillsides to windy mountain peaks, bison, elk, antelope, bears, wolves…. The list goes on and on. 🐻 I’m going to work on myself, not only expressing more patience with people (especially on the roadways), but in reminding myself just how lucky I am to have chosen this spot – this place on the map – to make my home, and to be a better ambassador to the lands and wildlife. 🐻 📷of a young bison having a snack break in the middle of said two-lane highway. . . #visitmontana #drivebetterthoughplease #montana #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstoneforever #bison #wildlife #buffalo #exploretocreate #liveauthentic

Bison live in small groups, or bands, whose basic unit is one or more females and several generations of their offspring. Adult males live on the band’s periphery or form their own small groups. Large temporary herds of bison may arise from the congregation of dozens or even hundreds of individual bands . . . . #yellowstonepledge #yellowstoneforever #ivayellowstonetakeover #yellowstone #montana #wyoming #nationalstatepark #journeyoffirst #yellowstonepark #explorer #earthfocus #adventureseeker #blacktravel #hikingadventures #hikingculture #hikingtrails #hikinglife #hikingtrip #hiker #waterfalls #bison #geyser #natgeotravel #bison #outdooradventures #outdoors #ivadventuresclt

I’m pretty sure one of these days it’s going to warm up and act like summer. I’m over waking up to temps in the 30’s. . Quick customer service rant: Drove 90 minutes to see @Avengers yesterday at @regalmovies and the projector crapped out 2:15 into the movie 😕. They refunded our tickets. I asked if they could do more than that, they told me to contact corporate. Emailed them and received a canned response saying “sorry and call customer service.” So I call and they offer a small popcorn. 🤦🏽‍♂️ I wanna give a shoutout to @outdoorresearch, @ospreypacks, @llbean, @rei, and @backcountry because I’ve had to deal with their customer service in the last six months. Thanks to them having such great service I was literally shocked at how bad things were with my call today. 🍻😂

This is a yearling gray wolf in Wyoming. Wolves currently reside in many western and midwestern states in the US, but outside of the western half of the country, my home state of North Carolina is the only state with a known population of wolves. The conversation of reintroducing wolves in Colorado seems to be gaining some traction right now, and I’m curious to hear your thoughts on whether or not you feel that bringing wolves back to Colorado in an official capacity makes sense. New Mexico and Arizona have worked hard to bring back the Mexican gray wolf and the gray wolf has made a real comeback in the northern Rockies. Knowing all of that, what are your thoughts on reintroducing wolves onto the Colorado landscape? Do wolves belong in Colorado? 🐺

Earth without the 'art' is just 'eh' ... ... ... Imagine people coming back from a place where you'd never been and had no pictures of describing bubbling mud, hot water erupting from the ground, waterfalls taller than Niagara, forests as far as the eye can see, steam spouting from cliffsides, and canyons painted in yellows and pinks. You'd think they were nuts. And that's exactly what happened to many of the first white folks that went back to NY or DC to talk about what they had seen at Yellowstone and why something should be done to protect it. ... So on the next expedition, surveyors were careful to bring a painter, early photographer, and sketch artist with them. And it was these early sketches, paintings, and pictures that finally convinced the US government to do something that had never been done before in the world: create a National Park. .... Yellowstone was the first and thankfully not the last (there's 61 official NPs and over 400 sites managed by NPS). It's story in the context of today's world has me thinking a lot about having vision for preserving the world for future generations and the role that art plays in that. Here's a couple of my unbelievable sights from a few days in Yellowstone. If you've been moved by any of my pictures this year, find a national park foundation or local community conservation group or an artist, and give them a few bucks. 💙🌎💙 #earthwithoutart #eh #earth #art #shockandawe #nationalparks #nytparkadventures #np10k #yellowstonenps #yellowstoneforever @yellowstonenps #visitwyoming #wyoming #hikewyoming #wy #thisis35 #bestlife #roadtrippin

I have a feeling this beautiful cinnamon black bear we saw last week might be the one getting into trouble around Tower...I sure hope not. Becoming too habituated never ends well for the bear. This photo was taken from the vehicle in a pullout as the bear crossed the road right in front of us.

After looking for #wildlife in every Canadian corner we went, we were a bit disappointed to see almost nothing.. (Sorry Canada, it’s true) And then we arrived at Yellowstone. We thought this was going to be our last chance to see anything but didn’t dare to get our hopes up.. Then magic happened! The first hour into the park and bison everywhere. We were very lucky even to get back into the van. The first day, a good first start! Over the next days we will be showing some different sides of Yellowstone. Spoiler alert: more wildlife is coming! #hideoutside #brittoen

If you are in the park and there are clear skies at night, take some time to step outside and look up! You’ll be sure to add even more magic to your trip to @yellowstonenps. 📷: @tcluderay . . . #yellowstoneforever #stars #yellowstone #ynp #rooseveltarch #nationalparks #darkskies #nps #montana #wyoming

When you take that first big bite of your meal and the waitress immediately shows up to ask how everything tastes.

What animals do you want to see more of? May is typically when we look for bears in Yellowstone, so that’s what I post the most. What else do you like seeing?

This cinnamon colored black bear found a leg from an old carcass, then proceeded to bolt up the tree and jump down onto this rock where it would enjoy a nice lunch. Canon EOS R & 400mm f/4 DO IS + 1.4x extender ISO 200 - f/5.6 - 1/400th (handheld) May 18th, 2019

Where I’d rather be. Instead I got to go into work today. •••• This young grizzly gal seemed so small last weekend when we came across her not long after our big grizzly boar sighting! She’s looking good after a long winter nap, and with her light coloring she almost blends in with the yellow grasses. • • • • #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #ynp #yellowstonepledge #yellowstoneforever #grizzlybear #grizzly #bearsofinstagram #wyomingwildlife #herwanderfullife #radparks #findyourpark #ourwild #discover_wyoming #thatswy #wyhomeing #wildwyoming #westbysouthwest #teamcanon #wildlifephotography

Each time I go back to Yellowstone, I am reminded how much of a natural wonder she is. I am also remind just how fragile she is. Today I saw so much trash, traffic, and careless ignorant people. Yellowstone won’t be here much longer if we don’t make a change....and neither will have the country. #boom #therealbigbang #yellowstonepledge #yellowstoneforever #yellowstonenationalpark #protectourparks #protectourplanet #preserve #wildlifeconservation #conservation #wyoming #montana #montanamoment #montanalife

The calm before the storm... ⛈ Here’s a shot I got the other day at Yellowstone lake and what a dramatic scene it was! Walked around the lake shore looking for a cool composition with the melting ice and the lake, and ended up finding this really cool shape in the ice. Almost looks like the leaf on the Canada flag! Have been enjoying getting out and trying to do some landscape photography...it’s not something I do a lot of but I do enjoy the times I do! Hope y’all enjoy 🙌 • • • #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstone #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #usinterior #nikon #nikonusa #landscape #landscapephotography #jacksonhole #discover_wyoming #nature #natgeo #splendid_shots #splendid_shotz #earthpix #storm #thunderstorm #winterlandscape #shainblumff #yellowstoneforever

Some bison and "red dog" sightings from this week at Yellowstone. With bulls reaching over 2,000 pounds, Bison are the largest land animals in North America and were nearly wiped out by U.S. colonizers before being recovered through Yellowstone's bison breeding program. The newest generation of bison calves, referred to as "red dogs," were recently born and appear in my pictures. If you want to know anything else about this incredible species, let me know! #yell #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstone #ynp #nps #nationalparkservice #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #yellowstoneforever #jamesenmontana

Theses were big yearling cubs but they don’t want to grow up and leave Mama Bear! They want more milk! These were in the same location (Tower-Roosevelt) as my recent Mother’s Day photo taken last year and may well be the same family.

Moooooose! A little over a month ago I took this photo of a bull moose in Yellowstone’s “Round Prairie”. I had missed some other bulls earlier, but this one came over the ridge, and pursued a female over the meadows into the forest. I have been so focused on bears the last weeks, that I almost forgot there’s other animals in the park too… Moose are amazing, and especially with antlers the bulls are impressive. There’s been some moose sightings still in the Northeast part of the park, but I haven’t been able to check them out myself in recent days. The day I took this photo the park got a lot of fresh snow, and exactly one month later we can see the snow falling again… Oh, Spring! . . . #yellowstone #yellowstonenps #yellowstonepledge #yellowstoneforever #natgeo #natgeotravel #wildlifeplanet #earthfocus #wildlife #photography #wildlifephotography #love #keepitwild #naturephotography #ourplanetdaily #natgeoyourshot #wyoming #jortme #wildlifeguide #yellowstoneguide #nikon #ynpforever #moose #bullmoose #nationalparkgeek #ungulate #bull #visitgardinermt #animalkingdom

Tonight I pulled over in a pull out because I saw a grizzly bear in the distance. I shortly learned that two black wolves and one gray had just taken down an elk in the area! The bear was walking down toward the carcass I watched the wolves try to chase the bear away. The bear claimed the kill and fed while the wolves bedded down nearby.

Yellowstone 🏞

You are so unique, Yellowstone. It takes you 3 days to visit all famous spots in Yellowstone NP, then the rest.. I don’t know how many months will it take to explore this majestic national park 🙂 #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstone #geyser #yellowstoneforever #yellowstonepark #glacier #moundspring #excelsiorgeysercrater #montana #idaho #nationalpark #hiking #summertrip #summervibes #experience #roadtrip #travel #smile #instadaily #picoftheday #photooftheday #instatravel #happy #bacterialmat #cloudyday #instatrip

The great gray owl is a huge bird, but so well camouflaged you could nearly walk right into without seeing it... like we did at this encounter.

Bison herd in the heart of it all. 🗺
