Outdoor Exploration: National Bison Range

I took advantage of one more nice Montana weekend and headed out to the National Bison Range in Dixon, Montana.

The range was dedicated by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1908 to protect a bison herd that was placed there in 1909. Since then, the reserve has housed anywhere between 350 and 500 bison, but is also home to elk, mule deer, white-tailed deer, antelope, bighorn sheep, coyotes, mountain lions, bears, bobcats and birds.

I got to see some bison and look at the Mission Mountains – some of the most beautiful in Montana! Check out some pictures from my trip:
