Have you ever seen a buffalo really close up? I did. Last month my family were driving through Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota at sunset, enjoying the views. We spotted a buffalo herd (there are over three hundred bison in the southern unit, where we were). What a treat! As you can see above, the lighting was ideal--with the setting sun streaking its golden rays through the trees and caressing sage-strewn grass field. We went wild and started clicking cameras.
Suddenly something dark and huge went by within inches of the side of the car. Oh, my god! It was a stray bison. You see that's why we stayed inside the car; if we hadn't, I might have been trampled. Never go near these huge untamed wildlife!
