After having been stuck in several buffalo jams, I have concluded that is deliberate on the part of the buffalo. I have two theories as to their motivation.

Theory 1: By walking down the middle of the road, they are demonstrating that they are dominant over these big noisy critters that are stopped waiting for them to move.

Theory 2: Buffalo have a sense of humor. "Hey Pete! Look what I can do." "Aw, that's nothing. Watch me stop twice as many cars as that."

Exclamation YellowStone NP

Been there several times with my 28' class A, no problem stopping in viewing areas. The sights are beautiful the animals wonderful the people incredibly stupid why more don't get hurt is beyond me. Use your common sense and don't take chances these are WILD animals and not some Disney scripted robots. I don't stay in the park to many yelling screaming kids I use the smaller Idaho parks that aren't to far away. Use plenty of sunscreen and bug repellent as the skeeters are fierce in some areas in the evening. Nothing like it though quite a nice adventure. Take lots and lots of photos and try not to let the crowds get to you.The crowds get to me the people are just to many and everywhere I won't be back unless it is early spring or fall after the kids go back to school.
Cody is a nice place to visit stay overnight and get provisions before going in to the NP. West Yellow Stone is busy and often crowded, the prices are high too.
Once I got to a state camping ground about twenty miles away I could shake of the crowds and enjoy the forest.

Yeah I hear ya and agree about the crowds of people, some not so smart. It seems the older I get the more I like my own company, by and large. But Im goin to thr rally and that will be a time to hang with like minded folk. Lookin forward to YS next year, rally this year. Sandy

Hi Mystic,
Wish I was going with you. How long do you have? I spent 6 weeks out there last year and it wasn't enough. The Colter Bay RV Park in the Teton National Park has full hook ups and is the best of the campgrounds in the national parks proper. Fishing Bridge is a parking lot with hook ups but is full during the season. I got there in late june last year and it still had snow and mud but it was close to most things. I also stayed and the Yellowstone Edge in Emigrant Montana. Be there on the 4th of July and take part in all the festivities including the rodeo in Livingston. Cody was a pleasant surprise. Find out when the Indan Pow Wow is and see it. I stayed at the Ponderosa and it was great. Ask for a spot by the river. It looked like a cliff to me. Definitly do the 2 scenic highways mentioned. When you finally get home you will want to plan your next trip out there. Don't worry about seeing the wildlife, they will find you.

The last 2 times I was in Yellowstone, we rented snowmobiles and rode into the park. This is a whole different way to enjoy this beautiful place. When visiting in the summer, the most hauntingly beautiful place I've ever experienced is Artist's Point. I haven't seen it for nearly 30 years, but can still close my eyes and see it as though I was looking at a mural. Just something about that place that I can't shake (lucky for me).
