In any case, the wildlife--including eagles--are a major tourist stopper along the roads. Just look for the lines of parked cars. And the animals are remarkably unconcerned by the people. Some of the photos show how close to the cars they come. Just remember folks, these are wild creatures and BIG. Don't let their peaceful appearance lure you into close approach.

Along that stretch of road, the river flows peacefully - a haven for fly fishermen. And the stream was shallow enough at the crossing for the buffalo to wade and frolic, even the small light brown calves. Up a steep slope on the meadow side they would go, bouncing and kicking their heels in the air, while their parents plodded at a steady pace. For all of them, there was as little concern for the cars and the tourists as for the fish in the stream. All in all, a tempting intermission for a day of touring the park.
Lots of photos. That's where most of the story lies. But I'll have to find a way to transcribe from videotape to digital still. A try at copying the TV image with a digital camera gives the poor results shown - hardly worth the effort.
