Finally The Wild Buffalo
My next journey was through Broken Kettle Grasslands because that's where the wild buffalo live. Even though I've never seen them here yet, I had a feeling I was going to get lucky on this day. Sure enough, as I traveled down the road looking out my side window, I saw something moving out in the distance.
The thing is, even though I could basically see not much more than specks on the landscape, they didn't look like cows. I could swear that I thought I saw bigger shoulders and heads on these creatures. They couldn't be cows, could they?
I just kept taking as many pictures as I could, hoping they would be good enough and close enough to see. I just knew in my heart the whole time that they had to be buffalo that I was seeing. Last time I did this they turned out to be cows. I wasn't really sure then. I'm glad this time I was completely right.
These buffalo are the biggest wild animals I've ever seen with my own eyes. I've seen plenty of deer, but they don't come close to this size. This is one of those wildlife sightings that makes me feel like I accomplished something. That happens whenever I see something new and special. It's a wonderful feeling. This is why I love nature so much. I'll talk to you later.
