Walking Near The Buffalo
I've been to this place before, and I've even shared the pictures here on my blog, but the buffalo were all near those trees you see in the distant background. I had to use the zoom on my good camera to see them. I couldn't even see them as anything but big dots with my own eyes.
Let me tell you, being this close to one of these creatures is amazing. You don't realize how big they are until you get this close to them. They're huge. These animals are much bigger than a cow. They looked about six feet high. They stood about as high as me, and they are on all fours.
I've probably only ever been closer to geese and raccoons. The raccoons were scarier because they came after me. I have a few old posts about that incident. I do have to say that I was very intimidated walking near these buffalo. They're huge and they aren't docile like cows. I was safe enough though. This was one of the most fun adventures I've had so far. What a great day. I'll talk to you later.
