I arrived at Spruces a few minutes earlier than the agreed meeting time, so I took some pictures while waiting for Debbie.
When Debbie arrived a few minutes later, we headed towards the Bison enclosure, with an occasional stop for pictures along the way.
It didn’t take too long before we were inside the Bison enclosure and now I know the way! One Bison greeted us soon after we entered.
As well as the usual road into the enclosure being closed – also most of the usual route I take inside it was blocked off. This is when I found out that this enclosure is actually much larger than I realized. One time I had noticed another road inside and had followed it a short distance before coming to a gate. I mistakenly thought that gate was the end of the enclosure and I turned around and went back – but this was just a way for them to section it off and divide the herd when necessary. After that it was quite a distance to the next gate, which actually was the end. We found 2 herds in this large area, but only one of them was close enough for some zoomed in pictures.
Just outside the enclosure is a nice picnic spot at the Lake Audy camp ground. I had never been in here, but Debbie had brought food (she is so resourceful), so we stopped to eat. I just took a couple of pictures of the frozen lake while we were there.
This day isn’t over yet, but will be continued because I still have many pictures to go.
