I’m introducing Yellowstone this week, where I’m working as a park ranger for the season. There’ll be plenty of Yellowstone to come. In my first couple of weeks I’ve seen a grizzly bear and a black wolf. Then there’s the bison, trumpeter swans, and sandhill cranes. The place is utterly amazing. I don’t have pictures of it all, but I’ll share the ones I do get along the way. I thought I’d start with one of the most iconic places in all of America, Old Faithful.
A bison slowly meanders in front of Old Faithful on a cold spring afternoon minutes before Old Faithful was to erupt.
He then continued sauntering along. Be careful out there kids. Just this past Friday the first bison goring of the season occurred when a group was standing too close to a bison. You need to stay at least 25 yards away. A 16 year old girl turned around to make a photo when the bison charged and knocked her down hard, goring her in the process. These are wild animals.
