"Elk" Wildlife Tip by sim1

Wildlife, Yellowstone National Park: 73 reviews and 171 photos

by sim1

Elk are the most abundant large mammal found in Yellowstone. More than 30,000 elk from 7-8 different herds are during the summer in Yellowstone and approximately 15,000 to 22,000 during the winter in the park.

And because there are so many of them, they are quite easy to spot. This elk is standing close to the road.
