Mule deer we met in Grand Teton NP. It is obvious they have to watch out for pedestrians and bycyclists. And, as our roedeers, they seem to like gardens.

This was the only place we did see the Pronghorns. They did not seem to run as freely as the bison did. But such a beautiful deer/antelope.

Our first encounters with the Bison herd was after the sunrise at Teton Range. Our cameras already warmed up. And that was necessary as it was a frosty morning. We first saw the bison's on a small dirt road not far from the main road. Their tops was covered with frost. Then we went to the Teton side of the main road and just then the herd was moving over the road and came right at me as I stood at a tree at the edge of the road. And the fence was about 5 m from me. The herd run back and forth to get over the fence. They have done that many times before, I can tell, as the fence was broken both here and there. It was a running frenzy and several times one animal was to close to me. I had to back off and no shots taken as they were too close then. The main problem for the herd was the young ones. They had trouble finding a place where to cross. I saw one finally crawling under the fence.

A little later we found them again grazing peacefully close to a farmhouse.  😄

Lots of adrenalin that morning. Something I will never forget.

Today was the first morning I could sleep to 8.30. Some of the group are already gone. We are 6 people going home today. The others are going to other palces in the US.

Our taxi for the airport picked us up at 11.30. Did not take long to get there. Just about 30 min.

Waiting at the GATE, Bozeman Airport, Montana
One of the best views I have seen from a GATE I think.

We are going from Bozeman to Minneapolis
Minneapolis to Amsterdam and
Amsterdam to Arlanda Stockholm.

We leave Bozeman 13,30 Oct 5th local time. Comes to Minneapolis 16,47 local time
Leave Minneapolis 19,33 and arrive at Amsterdam 10,30 next day, Oct 6th

For a while we had company, another plane travelling alongside us.

Leave Amsterdam at 14,45 and arrives at Arlanda 16,45

And finally, closing in to Arlanda for landing.


A looong day! But as we go against the Earth rotation it seems longer then it was. Still, it was long enough. 13 h in the air and lots of waiting hours.

After that comes the bus to Stockholm and train to Katrineholm. And Taxi home. I was home 21.30. Tired!
