wyoming wildlife

Some cleared roads in Yellowstone National Park opened for bicyclists this week. Work continues to open major routes to cars by April 21. Soon, millions of people will visit the park to enjoy its amazing natural wonders. Just remember, bison always have the right of way. Photo by National Park Service.

Public lands are all about flexibility. There’s so much to see and do. Exploring nature and watching wildlife are just a few of the many recreational activities waiting for you. It looks like this young moose at Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge in Wyoming is giving outdoor yoga a try. Photo by Tom Koerner, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

palaeoart Had some fun on Sunday night prepping this 4 inch Priscacara extinct fish from the Green River Formation. This freshwater perch-like fish would have settled to the bottom of this Great Lake in Wyoming 50 million years ago so it was great to be able to breathe life back into it last night. Love the fact that no human has ever seen these fossils until they’re slowly uncovered.
