The bison are ready for Thanksgiving

The Bison Are Ready for Thanksgiving
Bison Prairie Gateway, Midvale Heights, at the intersection of S. Midvale Blvd. and the Southwest Bike Path. The sculptures by artist Bill Grover commemorate the fact that Madison was at the northeastern edge of the North American bison's range and at the edge of the tallgrass prairie that provided the habitat for the bison. More information. There's also a video of the construction of the gateway.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Nice shot! I never knew until recently there's a sundial in the ground just behind these guys.
