    We were running late but would still get to the Old Faithful area before noon, so we could find Jereb. Well that idea was shot to #$^@ as we headed south near Fountain Flats, we came upon a bunch of cars stopped in the road. We were stuck in an animal jam. Although we were a long ways back from the action we could see that another large herd of bison were crossing the road walking left to right (BPF notice my hesitancy to say east to west :=). We sat there for about 45 minutes before the herd made it across the road and traffic again began to move. As we inched forward and got near the herd they again started crossing the road this time from right to left. This time rather than being way back in the line however, we were the first car behind the Bison jam. I will admit that if I had been a little more aggressive, I could probably have made it past the roadblock, but I was enjoying the up close look. Eventually there was enough of a gap that we were able to get through. We had now spent a total of 1 hours watching bison at this spot.
