Bison at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge

Once we returned to Colorado we were able to be a part of a bison viewing bus tour at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal. We heard a history of the wild American bison before heading out on our tour. The kids loved riding on the bus and looking through the binoculars. We saw quite a bit of wildlife, but the highlight for us was seeing Max and Deidre again after our long trip.

Deidre holding Hannah. Hannah could not get enough of her DeeDee.
The bison herd. We were able to see much better with our binoculars, but my camera does not zoom that far very clearly.
The view of downtown from the refuge.
The bird flying over this lake was a blue heron.

Another lake (after Lake Erie these lakes looked like ponds to us) on the refuge.
