    Saturday, June 25, 2005: Nine wiling hikers met in Hayden Valley to participate in Ballpark Frank’s “Opus 1- Follow the Road” trek. Would I miss such a thing involving historic routes? Not.

    I was a little worried that I was holding the group up when I encountered a herd of bison before Otter Creek. The bulls were feisty; bucking, snorting, pushing and shoving. I was the first car in line and did not want to push them. At one point they broke into a kickin snortin gallop headed straight for Otter Creek. They galloped off the road, saw the water of Otter Creek and galloped right back up! I resigned myself to the 2 MPH and had some more coffee. Suddenly I heard on my radio “Roadie, is that you up there?” Ballpark was in the bison jam behind me, and I found out that more than half of us were stuck there too, having just had breakfast together at Canyon! We arrived at the meet point in Hayden Valley about 15 minutes late. Greywolf, TYT, A, and D were already there.
