    After watching Grand Geyser we headed to Canyon, of course we stopped for ice cream at the Lower Ham store first. On the way to canyon there was another bison jam in Fountain Flats. Fortunately for us we were heading north and the bison were in the southbound lanes. We checked with the odometer on our car and southbound traffic was backed up for over two miles.

    Once we checked in at canyon we headed to Hayden Valley and looked for animals. Although we did see the usual elk, bison, a crane, bald eagle, geese, pelicans, and a beaver, this seemed to be the evening of just missing the exotic critters. According to other visitors we just missed a grizzly bear as we turned into a pullout, and in another spot were told that we had just missed some wolves on a carcass. Oh well. We (especially Daryl) are happy to just watch bison. We stayed in Hayden Valley until after dark listening to the frogs, and snipes. We even heard a couple of elk bugles. We headed to the cabin and went to sleep around 11:00pm.
