Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam

As mentioned earlier, there are many young animals this time of year and so we were treated to many "red dogs" as well as many of the adults in the process of loosing their heavy winter coats. When you see these animals right up next to the side of the truck you realize what a massive animal this is. The season is still fairly young and there have already been some conflicts between the tourists and the buffalo. Guess people think they are docile and slow moving. That they are not!

That afternoon we were treated to the three cubs with the mother in the meadow. Just like we had seen with the other young ones, the trees beckon to them! Up the tiny spindly trunk and get back down once the branch begins to bend. They were so much fun to watch. We were very lucky every time we saw the bears we were in a good position to pull off and spend some time watching them!
