It was a memorable experience

It was a memorable experience. I enjoyed the cool breeze and the greenery throughout. The monkeys can be quite a menace. Great spot for photography.

Didn't see any Bison

Bison Valley was not a great experience. We could see only forest and stone. We never got to see any bison at this place. However we believe it was our bad luck that we couldn't see anything. But roads, we just loved it since it's was the ghat section while travelling.
