Yellowstone National Park is one of the most visited national parks in the country. The vast majority of visitors see the park during the warm days of summer, when the grasses are plentiful and the bison that call the park home spend long stretches of time lazily grazing or napping. These visitors can be forgiven, therefore, for believing that the bison have a pretty easy life.

In winter, life is a completely different story: simply surviving is the name of the game. Daytime temperatures often hover in the single digits, while overnight temperatures plunge well below zero, sometimes bitterly so. (The coldest temperature ever recorded in Yellowstone was -66 degrees F, in 1933.) Food is scarce and often buried under snow. Bison must use their large heads like shovels, swinging them side to side to push snow off of the meager sustenance hidden below. Fortunately, their thick winter coats help to protect them from powerful wind gusts that swirl snow around into momentary whiteout conditions, even on days when no snow is falling. Those that make it to summer have certainly earned the right to appear lazy to those of us who get to return to a warm house when the weather turns nasty.
