SNAPPED: Bison herd crosses Yellowstone River in America’s first national park – Buckrail – Jackson Hole, news

Yellowstone National Park

JACKSON, Wyo. — Photographer T.L. Wilson captured these stunning images of bison crossing the Yellowstone River in the Hayden Valley of Yellowstone National Park earlier last fall.

“I drove up to Yellowstone National Park in the early morning from Jackson Hole,” Wilson said. “I saw a few photographers with their tripods set up along the side of the road, facing in the direction of the Yellowstone River. However, I couldn’t understand why they were there because the fog was so thick that you couldn’t see more than ten feet in front of you. So, I kept driving, hoping to spot some wildlife further down the road. A couple of hours later, on my way back, the fog started to clear, and then I saw the herds of buffalo on the opposite side of the river, framed by the backdrop of trees with freshly fallen snow. I assume these photographers spotted the herds the afternoon before. I pulled over to take some photos and suddenly, one of the buffalo started to swim across the river in our direction.”…More about this article in link below…
