American Bison

The first animals we saw in the park were the American Bison or buffalo.  They can get up to six feet tall and weigh up to 2,000 pounds.  They can also run up to 30 miles per hour.  They are impressive, especially when they are crossing your path!

Just a note, this is my 200th post.  I missed the 100 mark.  My blog will be a year old on July 22.  Time flies when you're taking pictures and posting them for a wonderful new community of friends from all around the world.  It's been a truly inspiring experience.

These animals are HUGE! Awesome to have them close, maybe a little scary too. Great captures.

The "beefalo" here at the canyon are definately not as big or furry.

Congrats, Loran, on your 200th post. You have done well--since you only started blogging less than a year ago.

Those Bison are some kind of HUGE animals, aren't they?????
