In summer, pronghorn might be the only large mammals you see in this valley. In winter the wildlife picture changes dramatically. Herds of elk and bison, mule deer, and bighorn sheep descend from the snowy high country to look for food. Gardner River Valley lies at the lowest elevation in the park. Here, even in midwinter, grasses are often sill visible above the snow.

Background photo caption - Wildlife sightings are not random but are related to season and habitat.

Inset photo caption - Pronghorn remain here past June. The summer vegetation provides perfect camouflage for females raising young.
