"Normal" Yellowstone

Yellowstone National Park covers a huge area and is actually a very wide caldera.  I've been showing some of the very unique areas but there is lots of the park that is much like other mountainous areas in the west.  I thought the river gently flowing through this meadow with the pines in the background was quite pretty.   There was one very strange thing about this visit to Yellowstone -- there were almost no animals.  In the past we've seen herds of bison and lots of bear and elk, or an occasional moose, lion or fox.  You hardly had to search to find them.  But this time I searched everywhere and all we saw was one deer and one sheep.  Where have all the animals gone?  (Rangers were rather scarce, too.)
