Buffalo Ranch 1

Buffalo Ranch 1

Autumn cottonwood trees punctuate the landscape along Yellowstone National Park's historic Buffalo Ranch. When bison populations in the park were reduced to fewer than 30 animals, and bison extinction was very possible in the U.S., the Buffalo Ranch was built to help protect and grow the few bison that remained. From 1907 to 1952 this ranch served a crucial role in protecting bison through the winters so that they could grow into the vast and healthy populations that we enjoy today. The Buffalo Ranch is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The magnificent Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, USA, shines on a bright summer day. This valley is home to many iconic animals including the bison, grizzly bear, gray wolf, and bald eagle, which can be viewed regularly from Northeast Entrance Road which runs along the length of the valley floor. Soda Butte Creek empties into the Lamar River, shown here, to create one of the healthiest wild trout fisheries in the western US.

The Yellowstone River flows through the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, just below the Lower Falls. In 1869, while on an expedition of the area, Charles W. Cook wrote in his journal, “I remembered seeing what appeared to be an opening in the forest ahead, which I presumed to be a park, or open country. I turned and looked forward from the brink of the great canyon, at a point just across from what is now called Inspiration Point. I sat there in amazement, while my companions came up, and after that, it seemed to me that it was five minutes before anyone spoke.”

Upon their arrival they did not find the boy and girl, but instead two geese, which promptly flew away never to return. It is believed that the Great Spirit changed them into geese so they could fly away together and escape the bounds of their tribes.
