Anyway . . . on a recent "un-busy" day off, my husband and I took a trip to explore more of LBL. Here are a few fun things we saw on that day.
Our first stop was the Elk & Bison Prairie.
We got to see the elk again! They are fascinating creatures, gorgeous and majectic. They are in the process of shedding old winter coats so look just a little less polished than they normally would. I asked my husband, "Doesn't it just make you wish you could brush them out so they're sleek and shiny?" He looked at me like I was goofy and said "No." Oh come on now, surely I'm not the only one! How about the velvet on those antlers? Don't you have any overwhelming urge to touch that? Anyone? Someone besides my sister Linda, that is. I already know her answer. Tee, hee.
And since you can't get out of the car while you're there (safety precautions you know), I took this photo out the car window. Oh yes, I love my new camera!
On the way to Wranglers' Campground we got to see this!!! Oh my goodness, by now I am so excited I'm feeling faint!
But that's not all. We got to see buffalo on the Buffalo Grasslands. Hey, put that tail down please, I'm taking a picture here!
Here are some lovely scenes from the Homeplace.
The Homeplace is a functional working farm, operating just as it would have in the 1800s. It was fascinating.
