Buffalo Jam!

I have eaten blackberry jam, been in a traffic jam, been to a music jam, had toe jam, and been through a big jam , but never have I been in Buffalo Jam. What is Buffalo Jam? Well, it's kind of like Bear Jam but there's a lot more of it. I must say, the kids liked it and you know how picky kids are.  If you have ever been to Yellowstone National Park you may understand Buffalo Jam. 


Two years ago we went to Yellowstone for a long vacation and I learned what makes Buffalo Jam. Instead of me explaining it to you, I will just let the picture show you Buffalo Jam. 
As you can see, a Great Buffalo Jam occurred in Yellowstone. About 40-50 Buffalo crossed the road and stopped traffic. This was our first Buffalo Jam and it lasted about 30 mins. I learned that Buffalo are sloooooow. This begs the question: Why did the Buffalo cross the road?   
Perhaps to get away from a Cougar, a Ram, or a Jaguar that were lined up down the road. Any way, put Yellowstone National Park on your bucket list. This park is the Disney World of National Parks. Remember: What's in your Woods, River, Lake, or Bay! Get up & Find Out!

Too funny! We went to Yellowstone on motorcycles (rode them from Delaware)about 5 years ago and never saw buffalo there BUT we did have "buffalo jam" in Custer State Park in South Dakota. I had my butt puckered for about 10 minutes because there was nothing between that beast and us on bikes!
