We went there last time - so we can go again next time, I think it's about the best spot that is close enough.

Thanks Petx Girl - not really snorting when it's cold enough that is just a normal breath showing up

Haha like the story goes , I don't have to outrun the bison, I have to outrun you. It would be close race for sure . but the bison outdoes us both easily. No Moose spotted (there are some in the park). However when I first arrived a beautiful 16 point buck showed up and me with the camera in the bag - time I got it out , he was long gone.

Great shot of a magnificent animal Dave. You must have been pretty close to shoot this at 70mm. What lens were you using?
