Guess what we saw after a fruitless drive through the bison range at Minneopa!
Last week, when it was gloriously warm, we met a friend to see the bison at the nearby state park. We drove through the bison range but the hill to the mill was closed so we couldn’t hike down to where we thought we could see the bison from the road. So we parked along the highway outside the park and walked along the fence. We hiked along for about a half an hour and then suddenly!
What was that? Are they going to be that close?
They are!!! Here they were circled together and grazing.
Wide shot of how close we could get. They definitely knew we were there.
Last year’s baby, maybe? Look at its cute little horns!
We were downwind so they walked towards us!! A little scary.
More little horns!!
We stayed for just a bit, they followed us for a while along the fence and gave up to graze and nap.
