The Yellowstone experience

Sheep - 3

The last day of our MIREN-meeting in Montana (more on that here) brought us to Yellowstone National Park, a place of endless wilderness and wonder.

We paid a visit to one of the field sites of our colleagues, on one of the tallest mountains of the National Park. Breathtaking views guaranteed, but a visit to Yellowstone would not be complete without some big mammal encounters.

Close to the top of the mountain, we got what we earned: a herd of bighorn sheep, not more than a few meters from the road, and obviously too proud to care about us, their admires.

Bighorn sheep are native sheep of the Rocky Mountains, roaming the alpine meadows, grassy mountain slopes and cliffs at the highest elevations. As such they serve as a reward for those brave enough to climb their way to the top.

This is just one of the countless highlights of the park (and our whole meeting in general), so stay tuned for more!
