The Greatest Wildlife Show On Earth Has Ignited

Springtime visitors to Grand Teton National Park and neighboring Yellowstone National Park are in for the "greatest wildlife show on Earth".

As winter snows recede and temperatures warm up, animals are beginning to shake off winter and are providing visitors with great views.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle:
In the first hour, we saw 75 bison, a half-dozen pronghorn antelope and a grizzly bear. 
Later, on a warm afternoon after a crisp morning, we sighted 85 elk, hundreds of bison, two more grizzly bears and a fox awaking from a nap, complete with yawns, stretches and curiosity. 
The arrival of spring at Grand Teton and neighboring Yellowstone National Parks in Wyoming has ignited the greatest wildlife show on Earth. Grizzly bears, bison, elk and moose are emerging in huge numbers this week as spring arrives with unlimited greenery for eats after a winter with 600 inches of snow in the greater Yellowstone area.

During our two tours of Yellowstone in 2015, we were treated to views of bison, bears, elk and bighorn sheep.
