Yellowstone 2009

We went up to my grandma's time share in Island Park, ID, again this year. Josh came for the weekend this time which was awesome!
I don't know if you recall from last year but I have had this CRAZY goal/dream of touching a wild Bison. Every year I go and I hope and plan. I have criteria, like the bison should be alone or away from other bison, lying down seems better because it has to get up to charge me, giving me a head start, and not around other tourists..... I have figured I can run about 20mph for a very short distance, I clocked myself once. And then I figured added adrenaline of a bison chasing me would make me go faster. Bison can run about 30mph so it would be a close call. Also it has to be close to the truck, like I said I can only run for a very short distance.

Anyway, this year, I decided I wasn't even going to talk about touching one or try. Hello, I'm pregnant, that would be dumb. Unless of course, your husband is driving and willing to drive really close and really slow next to the bison. Also make sure your sister is in the back seat to take a picture:)

Now the bison totally freaked out when I touched it, it did this fast this side step tap dance, that caused us all to pee our pants a little. Then Josh sped away fast, I think you could hear the tires squeal as he drove off.
