The Bison of Yellowstone
Yellowstone is famed for its Bison, or American Buffalo. These huge animals can grow to 2500 lbs, and can stand over 5 ft. high and attain a length of 9 ft. They can be found almost anywhere in the Park, but seem to love the rolling hills and plains on the eastern side of Yellowstone. Although they appear docile while grazing, they can be quite unfriendly and even dangerous. And, wherever the Bison want to go, they go! We were pleased to get some very up-close shots of the Bison (from the road, of course). And we had fun watching the traffic and bison get along.
