Magnificent Yellowstone Part Five – Bison!!

We were thrilled to find this herd of  bison mommas with their new calves right beside the road!! SKWEEE!!!

In case you’re wondering – no, I did not get out of the car to take these photos. Unlike the foolish woman in the last photo.

Practically everywhere you go in and around Yellowstone Park you encounter signs, pamphlets and warnings. Signs, pamphlets and warnings that you’d have to be blind to miss. And what are these warnings warning you about? To STAY THE FREAKIN’ HECK AWAY from the wildlife. Especially the big ones. That can run really fast.

And then you see inexplicably foolish sights like this.

I am so thankful we didn’t have to witness this foolish woman getting run down and gored by this bison.

    Wow what an amazing thing to see and be able to capture. I would have wanted to stay and watch all day from a safe distance.

    Can I slap the crazy woman?!

    That was beautiful! And I agree. That woman certainly doesn’t fit in the category of the smart people.

    When we went there, we even saw a wolf running along the road.
    By the way, are you staying at the hotel inside yellowstone, or a hotel outside it?

    Those are some truly amazing shots! I wish I could have seen a group of bison that close when I visited yellowstone. That looks like a great time.
