Thoughts on Yellowstone:
Bison have lived continuously in Yellowstone since prehistoric times, and today, there are about 4,600 in the park. We encountered these fellows on a snowy mountain road, and they were in no hurry to yield the right of way.

found three grazing and sunning themselves on a hillside in the Lamar
Valley. Yellowstone also has nearly 300 bird species.
