Picture a Day #336 – American Bison

In mid-July 2008, my husband Sam and I arrived in Yellowstone National Park for the first time. We drove into the park by way of the Beartooth Highway, which leads to the northeastern entrance.

Although we were lucky to get a campsite, I was disturbed by a report of a bear attack just outside the park. Nevertheless, we set up our tent and took a drive before dark. No trip to Yellowstone is complete without the presence of American Bison.This group posed on a convenient hillside, oblivious to our presence.

The only Grizzly I saw on this trip was through a spotting scope. Less dramatic than a closer view, but much safer.
