JUST ADDED! Visit LeHardy's Rapids -- the geologic boundary of Yellowstone Lake where the Yellowstone River bed drops to create impressive white water, especially during spring runoff. If lucky, we'll see some of Yellowstone's rare Harlequin ducks. We'll also discuss efforts to restore native Yellowstone cutthroat trout to Yellowstone Lake, the largest lake at high elevation in North America.
Update: 15 Harlequin ducks spotted at LeHardy's Rapids this past weekend!
Spring in the world’s first national park is a time of excitement. New life may be found everywhere. Bison, elk, moose calves and antelope and deer fawns are proudly displayed by their mothers in lush green meadows filled with wildflowers. Join award-winning professional nature & wildlife photographer D. Robert Franz for an individualized day of instruction in the field.
