I’ve spent much of the weekend editing and distilling down the 1,386 photos I took on our recent trip west and thought I’d share my top 12 favorite photos of the animals of the West with you.
This has been the year that I have truly embraced photography as my main hobby and as we traveled to my two favorite states – Montana and Wyoming – I’ve realized that landscape and wildlife photography are the photo specialties I enjoy the most.
I have a lot to learn about this hobby. And, alas, more gear to buy. Man, photography is just as expensive as RVing. The next lens I want costs $10,000!
That lens may never get bought. But thanks to our Roadtrek Etrek – which Jennifer calls our “Adventuremobile” – I am able to get to some pretty remote places and see some beautiful creatures.

I’m now planning photo RV trips for the fall colors, to get migrating waterfowl and winter landscapes. The mobility and ease of navigation of our Class B motorhome makes it ideal for outdoor photographers. From winding, steep mountain roads, to dusty, bumpy backwoods trails, our Roadtrek is indeed an “Adventuremobile.”
As an added bonus, it makes a pretty comfortable shooting blind to get really close to the critters.
So… here are my twelve favorite animal pics from our trip west this year.
