I promised a separate post on the bison in Yellowstone, and here it is. It’s mostly pictures.
We timed our drive home through Hayden Valley in Yellowstone for dusk, which is usually a period of high wildlife activity. We had no idea…
This was our first clue that there was going to be a delay.
A little further down the road, and we saw traffic coming from the other direction.
Every time the poor man in front of us would try to move, this bull boson would look at him and grunt.
We got past those bison, who made me very nervous by walking right next to the car…
I knew on an intellectual level that bison could swim. I was still ridiculously excited to see them wade right into the Yellowstone River. We pulled over to take pictures.
There were dozens of bison on both sides of the road, some feeding, some playing, and some swimming.
There were even bison calves. Cute little muffins…
The calves swam, too, but this one didn’t really want to.
Mr. Gecko took this picture.
He also took this one, which is of the most massive and impressive bull we saw that night.
