We left Yellowstone Lake and drove through Hayden Valley toward Canyon. This was our first encounter with Buffalo. I had some impression before the trip that we may see a few, but there were tons of them!

Here’s an idea of what happens to the traffic when the buffalo are around:

This was mid-day and the sun was much to harsh for slide film, so B&W was my only option. Even with the B&W, I had to blow out the highlights in order to get any detail in the buffalo. This guy was sitting by the road to enjoy the parade of tourists:

This guy was using the scratching post (former road sign) to get some relief:

Here is another group of buffalo near the road. We rarely encountered a single buffalo:

    love the atmosphere you captured with Hellroaring Creek. nice job working with the less than optimal lighting with the Falls shot.

    I love the Bunsen Creek train B&Ws, esp the first two. Wow, Ansel A himself would likely be impressed.

    FYI: the shot across Jackson lake is lovely…..could use a bit of horizon straightening
