Big Sky skiiing/Yellowstone snowmobile trip pics

Spotted these bad boys on the way to Yellowstone, I think they were just outside the border

Otherside of the road, they were all really nice bulls.

Yellowstone Elk




Looks like something had a hold of this calf




One of the ranches my friend manages, Crazy Mountains in the back ground.

Thanks for posting. Skied Big Sky a few times. Are those bison pics along the Madison going in from West Yellowstone? Probably a long shot, but I seem to recognize that spot.

Jarentz, seems like a nice place, had lunch at the Grand Hotel , awesome food. What made you leave?

Kuda you nailed it, exactly where that was at.

Okay, probably another wild guess, but were those first elk coming down the Gallatin Valley from Bozeman???

No worries Kudu. We had a blast, should have stayed out another couple of days, so much more we wanted to do and see.

Ghost, At the time we were there,it was a little to remote for her.I've been in the grand bar plenty of times.I worked on ranches and helped with interstate 90 bridges. My father is layed to rest in big timber .HE can see the crazy's everyday.I hunted Big sky for sheep about 4times, never got one, but packing in there for a week sure was fun.[Thanks for the photo's]

Re: Big Sky skiiing/Yellowstone snowmobile trip pics

I'm in PA now, and am heading back to MT several weeks from now. I enjoyed your pictures and report, Ghost.

Got an email from a guy in West Yellowstone last week and he said there were so many elk migrating down from the Gallatins that it looked like you were on the Serengeti.

I spend half the year on the Yellowstone River, sandwiched in between all of the places you pictured and discussed - Big Sky, West Yellowstone, Big Timber and the Crazy Mountains, etc.

It sure is beautiful there in the winter, as your pictures show. (Kinda wish I was there right now, riding in my Polaris Ranger side x side that I have out there, or fishing the Boulder River near Big Timber.
