Just off I 94 at Jamestown ND is the National Buffalo Museum. It advertises that it has two albino bison. That may be the case, but we have been there at least 3 times and have yet to see them. This visit was on August 20.
Pictures are by the Canon A 1100 IS point and shoot.
The displays are inside this building. There is ample parking for RVs in the parking lot. In an earlier visit we parked the rig there, unhooked the tow car and went into Jamestown for a couple of hours to see the sights.
Easily visible from I 94 is this statue of a bison. A better picture of it is on an earlier blog featuring large statues of animals popular in the area (turkey, loon, cormorant, deer, otter, crow, cow, largemouth bass, and walleye – see below). Part of the pasture for the bison herd is in the foreground.
Jo and our hostess, Brenda, under the massive head of a bull bison, also shown below.
This one is not so big. His shoulder still is about six feet high. The signs explain that the correct name of the animal is bison and that true buffalo are found only in Africa.
Brenda solved the mystery of the missing bison herd. She found them across I 94 in pasture for them there, well out of sight from the viewing deck at the museum. Their albino cousins were absent.
Now, here is the “etc”>
This statue of a walleye is in Garrison ND which we visited later in our trip while parked at the COE park just downstream from Garrison Dam. It backs up the third largest manmade lake in the US, Lake Sakakawea.
