One of the best afternoons of my life was spent with bison expert, Wes Olsen, watching these wondrous animals at Grasslands National Park. A hot August afternoon, Olsen drove me into the back country where we sat atop a Butte, binoculars in hand, and watched his herd in the coulee below. Olsen was the foster-father of the project, and reintroduced the herd and cared for them until he retired. And no, you do NOT want to get up close and personal to these fabulous creatures!
