Our 30 minute Minneopa Park Hike with a surprise!

Guess what we saw after a fruitless drive through the bison range!

Last week, when it was gloriously warm, we met a friend to see the bison. We drove through the 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 and walked along the fence. We hiked along for about a half an hour and then suddenly!

We stayed for just a bit, they followed us for a while along the fence and gave up to graze and nap.
