JACKSON, Wyo. — A herd of bison backed up traffic near Moran Junction this morning, Oct. 21.

Much a quintessential scene of the present day American West, a Jackson school bus stopped and made way for the herd of calves, bulls and cows to cross the road.

The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is the only place in the United States where bison have lived continuously since prehistoric times, arguably no other animal symbolizes the West as does the American bison.
