Last month DH and I took a little drive over the mountain to
Teton National Park
in . There wasn’t much snow and the big elk herds
hadn’t yet made their way down to the valley floor. Wyoming
Still the buffalo had gathered there to graze and take it easy like a bunch of domesticated cattle.
We noticed two young bulls squaring off for a little shoving match.
Like a couple of bored adolescents they were trying out their muscles and their fighting skills.
They seemed pretty evenly matched…
…and made quite a show of stomping and swinging their big heads.
They were totally oblivious to the scenic surroundings that would stop a tour bus in its tracks.
Then off to our right we noticed a couple of bigger bulls tromping over to see what was going on.
When the big guys showed up suddenly the youngsters lost interest in their head butting contest.
