Buffalo

I'm reading a book right now from the "Wagons West" series ...
I'm on the second one right now that is titled "Nebraska".
They hunt buffalo occasionally for survival as they're traveling in a wagon train to Oregon.

Anyway ...
This particular picture was taken in Yellowstone National Park.
I saw buffalo when I was there several years ago.
It is such a beautiful place.
Just gorgeous!
I'd like to go there again some day and spend more time there.


Comments:
I find bison to be unique and beautiful, although not everybody over the course of human history has agreed. Native Americans respected bison as their lives were literally dependent on the species. New settlers made the bison into a historical symbol of persecution. I have never been to Yellowstone but hope to someday. Besides the wildlife, I want to see the geysers and other geological curiosities. I hope you are able to return again, also.
 
I've been to Yellowstone many times and love it each and every time I go. I've also seen buffalo in Nebraska, but only because a nice man in a small diner told us which route to take that he thought was the most scenic in his home state...and it was.

Hope that you are feeling better by now and YES...Vicks Vaporub works for me too!
