Yellowstone and the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge

It is snowing outside, I have a slight cold and I'm staying in the house, I decided to start looking over old pictures and processing them. I am working on pictures from a trip to Yellowstone last October. It was a very interesting trip, especially on the second day after we arrived. It snowed and shut down all the entrances to the park except the West entrance. It did change our plans, since we were planning on driving down through the south entrance down toward the Grand Tetons. When we left since we were going to fly home out of Salt Lake City, we first drove through a snowstorm to get into Utah. We stopped in Brigham Utah at the Bear River National Migratory Bird Refuge. We had stopped at the visitors center, and were told we may be able to see some Clark's and Western grebes, if we were lucky. Well we were lucky, there were at least 100+ grebes throughout the refuge. I would recommend this refuge for anybody in the area to visit.
