On Wednesday, I noted the continuing saga of dangerous rest areas across the country. Today? More danger, but this time at the national parks.

After the Teddy Roosevelt National Park warnings about bison, this situation strikes me as one that is quickly going to go bad. Note: I am taking the photo from a short distance. We then proceeded to walk by the same bison. Apparently, neither Paul nor I pay attention to animal warnings.

This pretty much confirmed the assumptions about the rattlesnake situation (though I somewhat suspect they just don't want you to go wandering off, and threatening you with snakes is a good way to do it. At least, it was definitely going to discourage me).

Grand Teton: Bear warning? I was far more concerned with the misspelling on the written addition to the sign.
