Yellowstone National Park
Solo Bison in Hayden Valley
The Hayden Valley, where this picture was taken, is known for some of the best wildlife viewing in Yellowstone National Park. Thousands of bison, elk, grizzly bears, and coyote call the valley home and can be seen on the stretches of open land, the rolling hills and valley floor - as well as in a "buffalo jam" as they block traffic on park roads.
