Bison licking my truck, taken through the windshield.
What would Yellowstone be without bison? And how many folks have a bison get as up close and personal as this? This one was causing a jam, had many cars stopped as it stood in the road. Finally it moved so some cars could pass by moving in front of my truck. As I sat there it moved closer and closer and then started licking the truck….. After a few licks he moved to the passenger side, gave a lick or two then moseyed off onto the grass. Needless to say I was dumbfounded and the folks in the approaching lane were cracking up, getting quite a laugh from it all. I think this was a yearling, guessing by its size.

The calves sleep, eat, play and follow along where their mothers go.
The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone is impressive in its own way.
