What a fantastic start to our Yellowstone Trek! After a good night’s rest in Bozeman, MT, we headed south toward the park through the beautiful Paradise Valley. Some of us saw our first bald eagle as he flew right over our car. No doubt he was looking for his morning meal from the Yellowstone River. Even from the car you can almost feel the intensity of winter by watching the water flow over frozen chunks of ice.

Not long after driving through the famous Roosevelt Arch, we spotted a male bighorn sheep called a ram. Just above him perched in a tree was a juvenile bald eagle. It was a bit surprising to see this wildlife so early in our journey. If this is any indication of our next few days, we are in for an amazing experience.
