BIG! BROWN! BISON!
As you drive your car around the route in the Elk and Bison Prairie at Land Between the Lakes, you begin to see glimpses of Bison up ahead. Taking in all of the Bison up ahead, you notice they are scattered throughout the fields, the pond, the side of the road. Some are even laying in a dust bowl hoping to rid themselves of insects on their large backs.
What a treat! Approaching the main herd in your car, you notice there are several large Bison standing right in the middle of the road. You have to stop the car and wait. Your head goes up as you see movement in your rear view mirror. You see him. A very big Bison lumbering up the middle of the road directly behind your car. He is going to have to pass right by your car to get to where he is going. He does. As he lumbers past your driver's side door, you hold your breathe and say a prayer, and you don't move a muscle.
Finally, thankfully, he makes it past your car, meanders into the herd of Bison just ahead, and stops right in the middle of the road. Now there are several large Bison right in the middle of the road. Five minutes pass. Ten minutes pass. Fifteen minutes pass. Finally, the two large Bison in the middle of the road slowly move to the side of the road. One of them lays down just off the pavement. Now is your chance. You slowly move your car down the road past all of the Bison. As you pass the last one, you began to breathe regularly again. This is the Bison at the Elk and Bison Prairie at Land Between the Lakes. ENJOY!
