We were blessed with the opportunity to see this herd of wild bison on both trips along the Alaska Highway — on the way to the Yukon, and back again.
I didn’t realize how rare this sighting was until we asked several fellow travellers if they saw them and they all said NO!
I guess it was our lucky days…..
These babies do an awful lot of walking each day, very protected by the herd.
Side-note: I was surprised by how much they resemble beef calves….
Even though they appear friendly, I did not even consider getting out my vehicle, and you’ll see that I didn’t have to! These buffalo were not in the least bit frightened of us, and we maintained as healthy a distance away from them as we could —
It was a great trip, and a very surreal experience to have the honour of spending so much time in the presence of these spectacular beasts.
I’m extremely grateful for these memories 🥰
