WHERE THE BUFFALO ROAM

Lone Elk Park (St. Louis County)
offers visitors a drive-through
opportunity to see bison and elk
up close, and year round.

Herds of bison were first introduced
to this park in 1948.
(Elk several years later.) 

They've acclimated nicely
and reproduced to increase 
the population.

As the weather turns cold and wet,
they roam actively and
sometimes approach vehicles
very close.

(Hi boys.)

  3. So glad the buffalo are making such a wonderful comeback. In the early sixties if we saw one it was a big deal. They're such grand beasts!
