Animal Crossing

This was my first trip to Yellowstone National Park so I wondered if I would encounter any real wild animals, not statues. :)
After driving only a few miles, we spotted an elk or is it deer?
One good way to spot an animal in Yellowstone is to first spot groups of cars parked along the side of the road.
It is a sure sign they have found something interesting to look at.


Another few miles away, we saw another one about to cross a stream.
I was cheering at this point hoping he/she would cross because I have only witnessed such a sight on television.


Okay, almost made it to the other side.
Don't worry, he/she arrived safely.

The joy of being in the wilderness, we get to see animals up close and personal. I agree, seeing it cross the stream must have been so thrilling.

That is so awesome! To get so close to animals in the wilderness. That's a luxury to me in tiny island Singapore. :D
