Animal Watching Along the Madison River

Watching elk, bison, and other animals along the Madison River in western Yellowstone National Park.

In the fall, the animals in Yellowstone often congregate in lower areas where they can more easily navigate the winter snow and find food. This is especially true along the Madison River near Yellowstone’s western entrance. Elk often number in the hundreds here while they get on with the business of the fall rut and settle in for the coming winter.
