Day 2: Lamar Valley

This morning you will return to the Lamar Valley, also known as America’s Serengeti, to witness the morning hunt. A light field breakfast will be provided. Mid-day will provide an opportunity to explore the predators’ habitat on foot. Continue the search for bison, pronghorn and coyotes. The combination of snow due to high elevation and lush valley create the perfect atmosphere for bears, meaning the chance of encountering both Grizzly and Black bears is high. After dark, return to Cooke City for the night.
