As the sun rises over the Rocky Mountains, the resonant sounds of bellowing elk, croaking sandhill cranes, and howling wolves echo across the valley. Alone in the fragrant sagebrush meadows, you encounter a nursery group of mother elk and newborn calves grazing in the cool morning air. On the hillsides above, your spotting scope focuses in on a pair of courting black bears foraging on fresh alpine wildflowers at the edge of a montane glacier. Nearby, steam rises from the edge of a simmering hot spring. Bison and grizzly tracks skirt the the orange and turquoise rim of the bubbling pool. This is a week-long safari into the heart of the wild. Find out why the 18 million acre Greater Yellow Ecosystem has been hailed as "America's Serengeti," "The World's Wonderland," and "the Land of Fire and Ice."
