10. My Badlands vacation story

Husband and I were on vacation driving our Blazer through the Badlands. We came upon a lone bison standing on the road looking off into the distance. So we stopped a good distance back to strategize passing the old fella.

As we were figuring out what we'd do a car drove up behind us. A guy in yellow shorts and matching tee steps out of his car with his camera in hand and starts walking fast up the road.

As he got to us, and it was evident that he was going to try and get close enough for a photo of the animal, my husband opened his window and stuck out his arm to stop him. He advised the guy that the bison wasn't Bambi and that there was a reason he was alone.

All I can remember after that is leaning over my husband and yelling, "I don't want to see you die on my vacation!".

Thankfully the guy realized the danger he would have been in and went back to his vehicle. We proceeded slowly past the old bison. He was very big.

This was back around the late 1980s before cell phones. I doubt you get a signal even with a cell out in the middle of that nowhere.
