My Wild Bison Sighting

I had a feeling I was going to see something good, so I planned a drive through Broken Kettle Grasslands. This is the place where the wild bison live. Most of the time you never see them, but I was feeling lucky today.

The pictures I have today aren't the best. I only had my phone with me. It doesn't have the powerful zoom that my big camera does. It still did okay though. You can at least see the bison. I'll take my big one with me next time.

This was actually the closest bison I've seen at this place. They're usually much farther away. What you see in the pictures here is how I saw it. The zoom on the phone did just enough to match the eye. I was actually close enough that this creature could hear me talk. It knew I was there.

You may be thinking that you've seen bison before already. But this is a different kind of sighting. This isn't an ordinary, everyday farm bison, which I've shown you before. This is a wild bison. Not many people can say they've seen one of these.

I saw many more good things this day. Some I'll share with you soon, and some that I just won't have time. So some things will unfortunately only ever be seen by me. I wish I had time to share everything. So many good everyday adventures make it all so fun though.

Anybody could do this. That's what I keep saying. But not anybody does it. I do. I wish everybody with the resources would try. These everyday adventures give me so much peace of mind. I always come away refreshed and ready for the world again. And ready for nature again. I'll talk to you later.


  1. That is so cool that you got to see these awesome wild creatures!

  2. I agree with your sentiments about peace of mind when you take everyday adventures. They are good for the spirit!

  3. Oooh, they are beautiful! We saw many bison in the Black Hills last summer. We were actually stuck in a bison migration and it was both terrifying and thrilling to see them so close. Beautiful creatures. I'm glad you got to see this one!
