Bison Graze Snow Covered Buttes
February 23, 2023
An amazing wintry nature view of two bison grazing on the snow blanketed buttes near the frozen Little Missouri River in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The bison and other wildlife not deterred by the cold temperatures are able to cross the river for food and other purposes.
Theodore Roosevelt National Park preserves three areas of rugged, beautiful badlands in southwestern North Dakota. It was established in honor of the landscape's influence on Theodore Roosevelt who, as a young man, hunted and ranched in North Dakota's Little Missouri Badlands. Theodore Roosevelt could not have imagined how his adventure in this remote and unfamiliar place would forever alter the course of the nation. The rugged landscape and strenuous life that he experienced here would help shape a conservation policy that we still benefit from today.
