Tis the Season
It is mating season for the bison and they are in rare form. We haven't seen any "activity" in person, but the bulls are looking good. It is almost as if they have been groomed - their fur is perfect and they are so dark and soft looking. They are making all sorts of crazy noise - almost like roaring - and prancing around like the kings of the range that they are. They have routines, it seems, and they like to come to the iron gate behind our campsite just across the creek in the mornings. It is really fun being able to see them from the "6 star". The kids run over to the fence and try to get them to come....only Arnold is brave enough. I cannot get enough of them. They are such beautiful animals - I could watch them all day.
