We also saw some animals. Most were pretty normal, like these cows grazing in front of a scenic backdrop.
Some were a little different.
We were lucky to escape.
We stopped for breakfast in Helena, Montana.
I enjoyed seeing all the different types of landscape throughout the entire trip.
As we drove along highway 287, near Three Forks, Montana, we came across this scene.
On quick viewing, they seemed real, but are actually larger than life steel sculptures of horses.
The display is called the Bleu Horses. They are painted blue and white to have depth and they manes and tails made of polyester rope for movement.
More interesting rocks.
This particular formation is called Devils Slide. It was created when alternate layers of limestone, sandstone, and quartzites were tilted almost vertical and then eroded at different rates.
I caught this group of elk while we were waiting to enter Yellowstone. This is a pretty long range photo. I was looking out the window waiting for something to move out on the grassland. That big female on the right caught my attention and helped me get the male on the left.
I believe it is a male Pronghorn deer.
Due to weather issues and such, we didn't see many animals on this trip, but at least I got this guy.
Next will be Mammoth Hot Springs and return to Glacier.
