Swan Valley is part of the greater Yellowstone ecosystem and home to the largest elk and Rocky Mountain big horn sheep herds in the country as well as white tail and mule deer, moose, bear, mountain lions, mountain goats, fox, wild turkeys, swans, cranes, bald eagles, osprey blue heron, several species of ducks, geese, and songbirds. The area is truly a shutterbug’s delight with the spectacular scenery and possibility of wildlife photography. Moose are often seen from Highway 26 or River Road along the South Fork river bottoms. Elk are prevalent around the Palisades Reservoir, and there is an elk winter feeding just outside nearby Alpine, Wyoming. Be sure to bring a set of binoculars and get up close to nature.
