Uniquely Northwest Traffic Jam

I tried to go out to my property this afternoon. Small problem. 4 feet of drifting snow on my driveway.
I continued up to Seeley Lake for a quick visit. On my way back we had a traffic jam. Yeah a trafic jam in almost the middle of no where. Fortunately there was a state trooper in the backup. He took control of the situation and the offenders relented.

All the motorist (misspelling intended) must have been buffaloed by the traffic jam in the middle of nowhere!

That is really cool!

It was above freezing, but not by much. There were a few people with car out on the lake ice fishing. Not sure I would have been out there. There were wet spots on the ice. THis was out on the road between my place an Glacier NP not more than 150 miles from Bozeman.

Interesting enough there were 3 Bison/Buffalo and one confused Cow.

Question

Two summers ago, my Bro In law and I motorcycled up the 66 degrees north. We passed a lone bison walking down the shoulder of the road. We thought is was a huge tree moving or a giant boulder. It was dusk. We zoomed by and realized it was a massive Bison. You could have shown a movie on it and called it a drive in.


Is this fiction or will they stomp on things if you tick them off?

John

I was not about to challenge the three Bison with my truck. Even though I had the largest vehicle in the line. I did not want to have to explain to my insurance company why I had two horn holes in my radiator. I was very willing to let the State trooper try his luck and risk his vehicle. Wait I own part of that cruiser as well.

Donna,
Thanks. It is bitter sweet return. I was happy to be back but the circumstances that brought me here were not favorable. See my thread on my medical condition.

In 2006 we saw lots of wood bison on the road to Yellowknife. We, as tourists, stopped to watch them. They were about 10 feet away and included bulls, cows and babies. When they started looking at us with those big, dark eyes, maybe thinking about the babies and what was the big metal thing near them, we decided it was time to move on. I am always amazed how close people get to them at Yellowstone. When we camped in a tent there in the early '90's, we woke up to a couple of them wandering amongst the tents. Kind of disconcerting. I guess they don't step on the tourists, but I felt wary the next night. They look like they move very slowly and aren't threatening, but I've seen film of them running and you'd not want to anger or surprise them, or get close to their children.

The same can be said for bears. We stopped to watch a mother grizzly and two cubs about 40 feet away, north of the Arctic Circle on the Demster Hwy, also in 2006. I guess it's so isolated there, they completely ignored us, as we didn't mean danger. I took some pictures, but stayed as close to the 4Runner as I could without being in it. My heart was beating pretty fast, partly out of fear and partly out of the excitement of seeing three blond grizzlies so close. They just kept feeding for winter—it was September.

You're right Michelle, keep clear. It's not like driving though a herd of cows or sheep on the road being driven to summer or winter pastures—that's what we have here plus mule deer that like to cross the highway at all the wrong times. Deer seem to have a death wish when it comes to motor vehicles—we know lots of people who have hit them because they'll run right into a car as if it weren't there.
