Buffalo in Wildfire Smoke

Buffalo in Wildfire Smoke | Cle Elum, WA | 2018

“People in the West like to shoot things. When they first got to the West they shot buffalo. Once there were 70 million buffalo on the plains and then the people of the West started blasting away at them … By 1895, there were only 800 buffalo left, mostly in zoos and touring Wild West shows.”

— American-British author Bill Bryson
