At left, Pauline guides our Japanese visitors Akemi and Akiko down the West Ridge on a tour of the property. We were all treated to some great wildlife views: we saw Whitetail Deer near where this picture was taken; their tails were quite beautiful as they ran to escape Neko. We came within about 15 feet of a Golden Eagle on a drive up to Helena. It was perched on the carcass of a small wolf (road kill) at the side of the road. Akemi and Akiko took a tour of Yellowstone and got to see bison, elk and other wildlife in addition to the thermal features.
