We were very lightly snowed on in Yellowstone NP just a week ago - luckily it was not heavy and the temperatures were just above freezing so it didn't stick.

Thanks Ray - that would have saved us some time. We washed the front of the car about six times with hot soapy water. Wash, rinse, find bugs, repeat...... :)

They are huge! And those horns are not just decorations - they use them. Just hook it into a car door, give a little head flip, and car goes rolling down the hill. If not, they could just butt it...

When the traffic gets all jammed up in Yellowstone, they name it by the type of animal - here is a bison jam. Note the size of this bull compared to the car!

In Yellowstone we saw a few animals, of course. We always gave them the right-of-way. Some of the bison were almost as large as our Lexus! We saw one car try to pass one too close and it bucked at...
