American Bison

On my last day visiting the Great Salt Lake, I explored Antelope Island and fell in love with photographing the American bison. As I was driving down one of the last roads to explore, I saw a bison moving toward the road. After waiting up the hill for about 10 minutes, he walked over, crossed the road and moved on to another field. This moment of hesitation in the middle of the road was very peaceful and quiet.
