Hey, dirty. (Please note, this picture was taken from a safe distance, as we were amply warned: BUFFALO ARE DANGEROUS ANIMALS. DO NOT APPROACH. Relax, I was just hanging out a window. He was totally cool with it.)
Did someone say squinty-eyed photo shoot?!?!
BRING. IT. ON.
Fact: Buffalo have black tongues.
No, he did not pose for this.
Yes, that is a giant buffalo turd behind him.
Maybe posed for this one.
You had to know this was coming:
PRAIRIE DOG! You should hear their cute little barks.
After driving around for a couple hours in the park, we headed back East. Doug took this picture while I was driving - looking back West.
Have I mentioned yet about how much of a saint my husband is? Because Doug drove pretty much the entire week. I drove maybe a total of 8 hours? On Friday, we started for home around 12pm (ET). Doug drove the whole morning in the park, and then he drove until we stopped for dinner at 6ish (ET). I drove from about 7 to midnight (first time in Iowa, whoo!), then Doug drove from midnight until 6am. I was feeling good around 6am, and we were in Michigan, so I thought, no sweat - I'll get us home. Yeah. Around 7:30am, I pulled over to avoid killing us because I was almost asleep. I planned on napping for half an hour and then driving home, but Doug woke up and was ready to go. We got home at 8:30 on Saturday morning. What a rock star!
In summation - it was an incredible trip! I wish we had been able to spend more time hiking & exploring & what not, but at least we got to see some amazing sights and spend time with my amazing brother!
