I´m not sure if these were considered wild animals. They were in what seemed to be a fenced area. Or, maybe just shielded from the road.

Most of the time they tried to snatch our food but not in these images. I was surprised to see two of them in the cold, snowy mountains.

The Wapiti Elk seemed, if not tame, used to people around them. As long as you did not disturb them you could photograph and study them. It was a great moment, the last day, when we spotted them as silhouettes on the top of a hill.

Happy New Year!

The bears we met on our trip. And, yes, we were quite close to them. But they did not seem to care about us or be disturbed. Still there were Rangers that watched over us so we should not be stupid.
One of the grizzly bears were named Thomas. The Rangers named them.

Mule deer we met in Grand Teton NP. It is obvious they have to watch out for pedestrians and bycyclists. And, as our roedeers, they seem to like gardens.
