There are rivers of elk that migrate into and out of Yellowstone National Park each summer. A new exhibit on display at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyo., helps explain the importance of the park and the surrounding wildlands to those animals and other wildlife in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The display is unusual in that it combines science, photography, videography and art to tell the story of this unique place. The exhibit will be on display through December. The museum also houses one of the coolest American Indian and gun collections in the West and is along the route to the East Entrance to Yellowstone. Check it out, maybe after the crush of summer tourists subside. It’s worth the road trip.
