From the National Bison Range in Big Sky Montana the views are spectacular and offer a sense of vastness and room abounding.  I saw this winding river valley with its lush fields being watered in the foreground.  I don’t remember the river as there are many coming from lakes and reserves surrounding the Bison Range.  The area of land was so vast that there was no room left in the frame to show the Big Sky.

While touring through Montana we visited the National Bison Range and had the opportunity to view the bison roaming free.  We purposely stopped both to see the animals in a natural habitat and also so that I could take pictures galore of the bison.   It was a thrilling experience and a little scary too.  I kept at a good distance and used my Nikon D60 with Nikon DX 55-200 zoom so as to allow me a safety zone.  Click here to learn more about the National Bison Range which is well worth the visit.   Today there are 350-500 bison who call the Bison Range home near the Mission Mountain Range.   To see the young bison it is best to visit Mid-April to Mid-May.
