"There is no such sense of solitude as that which we experience upon the silent and vast elevations of great mountains."
One Sees Great Things from the Valley; Only Small Things from the Peak.” Gilbert K. Chesterton. Miller Ranch, the National Elk Refuge, Wyoming. ******************************************** This view always reminds me of Psalms 65:6 (HCSB) ““You establish the mountains by Your power, robed with strength.” #FrozenZenArt #TetonTuesday ******************************************** #frozenzen #frozenzenphotography #yourtake #photooftheday #tetoncollective #findyourpark #jacksonhole #visitwyoming #nationalelkrefuge #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #usinterior #projectexplore #wildernessnation #awakethesoul #splendidearth #discover_wyoming #usfws_nationalelkrefuge #tetoncollective
Cleaned up the #nationalelkrefuge with scouts tonight! A couple miles of walking in a chill environment. After Alex stopped screaming because adult gloves didnt fit his nearly three year old hands. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤔
I'm normally an aisle guy, but today I got stuck by the window! Seat 16A . . #jacksonhole #visitjacksonhole #staywild #buckrailnews #jhfavorites #nationalelkrefuge @jhchamber #viewfromabove #blueskies #mountaintowns
Several #Elk wandering the streets of #Banff in the #RockyMountains of #Canada 100 miles west of #Calgary . . . . Elk #Funfacts : 1) They are one of the largest members of the #Deer family, but are not closely related to the still larger #Moose . 2) Only the males have antlers. They can be up to four feet long and weigh 40 pounds. Each #antler may have 8 or more tines. Unlike with many other breeds of deer, the number of tines does not relate to age or maturity. 3) Females typically stand four feet at the shoulder and weigh 500 pounds. The males are forty percent larger standing five feet at the shoulder and weigh over 700 pounds. 4) Elk live 20 years or more in captivity but average 10 to 13 years in the wild. 5) The Greater #Yellowstone Ecosystem elk herd numbers over 200,000 and during the spring and fall, they take part in the longest elk #migration in the continental U.S. moving to and from their winter feeding grounds on the #NationalElkRefuge near #Jackson #Wyoming . 6) Elk consume an average of 20 pounds of vegetation daily. . . . #ArtOfTheDay #DeepArtEffects #Mountain
Le saviez-tu ❓ Les wapitis sont les seuls cervidés à avoir des canines supérieures ! . Elles ne leur servent plus à rien aujourd’hui, mais apparement les gens s’en font des bijoux... 🤦🏻‍♀️ ———————————————— #elk #elkrefuge #nationalelkrefuge #sleighride #wyoming #wyomingwildlife #wyoming_lovers #thatsWY #visitwyoming #discover_wyoming #naturalwyoming #wyomingmagazine #jacksonhole #wyomingonly #onlyinwyoming #wyomingexplored #wyomingphotographer #visittheusa #frenchroamers #lesfrançaisvoyagent #exploreobserveshare #roamtheplanet #earthpix #wapiti

Au Elk National Refuge à Jackson, les wapitis viennent passer l’hiver dans les plaines, à l’abri des prédateurs 🐺 . Ils sont aujourd’hui plus de 7000 à quitter Yellowstone chaque année pour migrer dans le refuge ! .

The National Elk Refuge is a sanctuary for one of the largest elk heard in the world. I’ve never seen so many elk, what a beautiful place. #beyondlimitsonfoot #wyoming #jackson #nationalelkrefuge
What a gorgeous sunrise this morning! #jacksonhole #nationalelkrefuge #wyoming #jacksonhole

On the way to Yellowstone!
Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Grand Teton National Park are breathtaking and a must see for anyone traveling in the United States. I left a piece of my heart there for sure. This picture was taken at the National Elk Refuge. Sleigh/wagon rides are available to take within the refuge where you can get up close to the elk. It was an unforgettable experience! #jacksonhole #jacksonholewyoming #wyoming #grandtetons #nationalelkrefuge #elkrefuge #elk #sleighride #usa #crosscountryroadtrip #solotraveler #femalesolotraveler #travelblogger #neverstopexploring #travel #wanderlust #wanderluster
Apple brought in five times more revenue in its latest fiscal year — $229 billion — than the entire economic output of Wyoming, which is my home and the U.S. state that is the largest producer of coal. (Wyoming has held this title since 1986 and produces about 40% of the country's coal.) California, where Apple is headquartered, is now back to being the 5th largest economy IN THE WORLD. In 2016, Wyoming's GDP was the 38th highest of U.S. states, up from 49th in 2015. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🚵🚵‍♀️ . . The National Elk Refuge . . "Antler arches have been gates to the Jackson Town Square since 1960. The antlers are from elk that winter on the National Elk Refuge. About 7500 elk spend each winter at the National Elk Refuge. The bulls shed their antlers each spring. Antlers are picked up by local Boy Scouts and sold by public auction in this square each May." #vanlife #vandwelling #vandwellers #homeonwheels #homeiswhereyouparkit #travel #explore #wanderlust #camping #campervan #vanwisegamgee #nomadlife #nomad #wyoming #biking #nationalelkrefuge
A lovely morning for a walk on The National Elk Refuge! Found this awesome sense of patriotism! #nationalelkrefuge #jacksonwyoming #godblessamerica #landofthefree #grandtetons #walk
“Whatchu lookin’ at?” - this elk to me in @grandtetonnps #wyoming
When the old bull elks fall off the perch the scavengers are quick to take advantage. This female coyote was making the most of her unexpected feast at the National Elk Refuge in Jackson. #wow_america #igersusa #visitewyoming #nationalelkrefuge #visitjackson #tetonnationalpark
Not a bad view for a run

Happy Friday afternoon! Today in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, we are seeing blue skies, the trees are starting to grow leaves, and spring flowers are popping up around the valley. Here at the Museum, the marmots have made a re-appearance, and we're seeing lots of ground squirrels and bluebirds. wildlifeart.org/webcam
Hallelujah!! Bridger Teton National Forest and Grand Teton National Park lands are done with winter wildlife closures and back open to hike!! Today was amazing, and we could see our apartment from the top of this ridge!☀️ #btnf #gtnp #nationalelkrefuge #tetonseverydamnday #bridgerteton
🔊 on!! Really cool footage from an early morning wildlife expedition a few days ago. Sage grouse strutting their stuff on a lek in the foreground and elk migrating off the #nationalelkrefuge in the background. It's an amazing time of year to watch the wildlife around here - and a good time to explore other outdoor options besides fishing as most of our area rivers are high and muddy from runoff. The dance of the sage grouse will have you in awe of their beauty and cracking up at the same time and the mating call is something like a mix of an 80's synthesizer, water droplets, and chimpanzee noises. Cruise around #grandtetonnationalpark at dawn and see for yourself!!
These two gorgeous creatures took me on a #sleighride on the #NationalElkRefuge 💕🇺🇸🐴 #jacksonhole #wyoming #roadtrip #outdoors #animals #horses #travel #travelgram #solotravel #nomad
A lone #pronghorn antelope grazes on a hilltop in late April on the National Elk Refuge. It’s curious to see pronghorn on the refuge this early as most are only just beginning to migrate back here from their winter habitat near Pinedale, about 150 miles to the southeast. This could be one of a few stragglers that missed last fall’s migration and stayed behind on the refuge. If this is indeed the case, he was lucky — the lack of snow on the valley floor over the mild winter was a significant contribution to the animal’s survival. #nationalelkrefuge
The features of the Bighorn sheep are so interesting to look at up close. These are one tough animal. The Bighorn sheep have tremendous eyesight to help them when judging distances for their cliffside jumps. They can also see other animals up to a mile away. This image was photographed with a Nikon D500, 600mm f4, 1/2000, f8, ISO1600. #nikon #nikond500 #nikon600mm #bighornsheep #grandtetonnationalpark #nationalelkrefuge #wyoming #discoverwyoming
I love animals, so for a while now, I’ve been avoiding places that use animals for entertainment of any kind (zoos, circuses, theme parks, etc). It was pretty amazing to get out in Grand Teton National Park & on the National Elk Refuge with BrushBuck Wildlife Tours; in 4 hours, we saw bighorn sheep, a herd of elk, a moose, a coyote, a bald eagle, trumpeter swans and buffalo (and their natural behaviour was more entertaining than anything you’d see in a circus!). I think the guy in the centre of this photo is my spirit animal... 🐏🐏🐏🐏🐏🐏🐏🐏🐏🐏🐏 . . . . . #bighornsheep #animals #spiritanimal #afternoonnap #posingwhilenapping #herd #peta #BrushBuckWildlifeTours #wildlife #nature #natgeo #GrandTetonNationalPark #NationalElkRefuge #JacksonHole #Wyoming #USA #travel #traveltheworld #nofilter #latergram
