Everyone wants to see the animals when they go west, and we were no exception. One warning, you never know when you will see them. It might be in a park and it might not. One of our most exceptional sightings on this trip happened along the journey. We were just a little ways out of a small town cruising along in Idaho when we saw some cars parked by the side of the road and people looking at something—usually a good sign for travelers looking for animals. When we went by, we saw why. On the far side of the pond filled with water lilies were a mother moose and her calf contentedly munching. I turned around and we went back and took their picture. On another rural road we passed a fenced in herd of buffalo. Other times the animals were more where you would expect, like the grizzlies in Glacier National Park. The pictures below start with the smaller animals.
