Yellowstone: West Thumb

West Thumb is known as moose territory, so we were keeping our fingers crossed for a sighting.  We didn’t come across any, but we did see numerous elk.

Yay—a picture with all four of us!  We saw tons of people with selfie sticks.  D received one at work just a week after we returned from our vacation.  It would have come in handy, although I would have felt really silly.

The guidebooks I read did not really seem to hype up the West Thumb area, so my expectations were not too high.  However, it definitely ended up being one of the highlights!
