I figured I'd get there early, it's a two hour plus drive from my home, and see if I could get some wildlife shots in the early morning. Apparently I was not the only person who thought that. I pulled up at 7:45 and there was a line of cars waiting to get in. After a quick stop at the restroom, two coffees does not help on a long drive) I was on my way. I went around the first corner and there were about 20 people with tripods out in the field...I really should have taken a picture of it. It takes about 2 hours to do the loop road, it took me closer to 4 I think, and I took a couple hundred photos. As many of you know you take alot to get a few. Here are a couple. If you want to see a few more just click on a picture and it will take you to my Flickr Photostream.
