Yes, that is a Bison. Before I hiked I took a drive through Lone Elk animal preservation area.
Then the world bird sanctuary.
Finally started actually hiking, though the start of the trail was at the sanctuary.
I wanted to take more pics of the trail but I was being eaten ALIVE by bugs. Probably have West Nile now. The two photo’s I regret missing are a deer leaping over the trail 10 feet in front of me and a pair of ducks I saw, a mallard and mrs. duck floating along like it was a lazy river. I estimate my hike to have been about 7 miles and it took me 2 1/2 hours. Afterwards my legs looked like this.
It was very muddy most of the way….
