One of our favorite Saturday activities is to hike along the Teton River to a very large tree on the banks that is home to a couple of adult bald eagles and a very large nest. For this excursion we didn't find the eagles home, but we hiked further down the river and came to north end of a large elk ranch. Along the way we did see a lot of beaver activity and one trap. The ranch is interesting because there are hundreds of elk, some bighorn sheep, and 3 buffaloes, two of which are albinos. After returning to our car, we noticed the eagles had returned, but we will have to wait for next time for a closer encounter.
