A few dozen plains bison were gathering for a get together at the Haysburger trail trailhead last night just before sunset. Stay in your car, everyone! I'm not sure if I've ever been so close to that many bison. There were a few people who stopped in the parking lot to take photos - it probably would have been a little scary if you were just coming off the trail and walked right into this herd! This fellow is one of the smaller ones - he decided to take a little wander into the parking lot to visit people after snacking on some grass near the road.
