Greetings Paul, The buffalo in the park are amazing. I couldn't imagine plowing through that snow by myself, but they walk through it with ease. I saw many buffalo in meadows browsing for food by sweeping their massive heads back and forth to clear away the snow and eat. But they really liked the roads for traveling about, machine packed snow made for easy walking. Winters in Yellowstone are long and hard from what I saw.

Hi Richard! A very nice shot of the bisons in Yellowstone National Park! Are they waiting along the roadside for the hay wagon to appear? Many friendly greetings and best wishes! Anton Trötscher

Greetings Anton, Thank you for all the visits and comments. I appreciate them. Glad you like the bison. The bison use this packed road as a migratory route. Hmmmm...I wonder if that is because the road is packed? Cheers, Rich
