POTD: Tough Sledding

Tough Sledding Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming 2013

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these beasts from the swift completion of their appointed rounds (eating). It’s quite interesting watching bison digging energetically down through crusty snow by swishing their heads back and forth. They must have pretty tough noses. They don’t necessarily go for the places with the least snow either, instead often choosing to work down through the sometimes deeper snow covering what they know or suspect to be the most choice grasses.]]>
