You know how sometimes, you’re just out to watch the sunset over the fishing lake in Caprock State Park? And you park your motorcycle and start walking, and then all of a sudden there’s a buffalo in front of you?

So you’re like, Hey, Mr./Ms. Buffalo, but then the buffalo begins to walk away from you, and you don’t want him to leave. But s/he turns back to you, and is just all, Hey, I’ve got to get some water, you’ll want to follow, it’ll be awesome.

And then all of a sudden there’s another buffalo trying to hide in the bushes right next to you, and you just want to say, Hey, you’re a huge buffalo, you should try hiding behind a boulder, not a tumbleweed.

That happens all the time, right? Right.

We were so totally caught off guard by these buffalo (as indicated by the motorcycle being on the OTHER side of the massively large creature), but it turns out they just wanted to catch the sunset over the lake, same as us.

With a few stops before, to get their scratch on.

Yup, that strange image above is a full grown buffalo, on its back, rolling around in the dirt.

Post dirt shaggy messiness:

Oh, and in case you didn’t know? No vehicles beyond this point.

Absolutely no vehicles.

Buffalo practice road awareness, checking left and right before crossing.

Enough pictures, I know, but these things are so utterly cool. They’re just absolutely massive, shaggy, and don’t seem to care about anything at all.

More shots in the gallery below – and I have even MORE to post again.
