Close Encounters: Western Wildlife

The animals of the American West are as iconic as the landscapes they inhabit. Among boulders, forests, rivers, and lakes, they burrow, forage, soar, hunt, and ultimately, inspire. They inspire conservationists to protect and preserve their habitats. They inspire traffic jams at Yellowstone and other national parks with their rock star celebrity; and they inspire artists as they have for centuries.
