Cheyenne Summer

“Here I am, somewhere on the reservation,” Katalynn M. Thomas says of this photo, taken during the first week of her internship with the Bureau of Indian Affairs-Rocky Mountain Region. The forest technology student helped to assess woodlands within a 445,000-acre reservation in Lame Deer, Montana. “The distance you can see from one area to the next is absolutely incredible!”

“This is just a portion of the herd,” Thomas says of the buffalo she encountered in the Crazy Head Springs area. “This herd was just massive. Not as big as (herds) have been, but for me seeing live, wild buffalo for the first time, it was a lot.”

“There were horses everywhere out there, and they could do pretty much whatever they wanted,” Thomas says. On this day, she was elated to get close enough to join them in a photo.
