Our Last Day Of Storm Chasing

It turns out that our last day of chasing was in Wyoming, north of Cheyenne. The following day was to be a poor storm day and after that, we had to head back to Dallas. We had some time to kill in the morning, so we went to Terry’s Bison Ranch. There are not only Bison there, but also horses with their foals, goats, camels, and llamas.

Of course, the Bison are the special attraction here. The herd is 5,000 in total, many are descendants from the Bison used in the film, Dances With Wolves. It was delightful to see the Bison up close. They can be hand fed which we got the opportunity to do. On the property is buried a Bison who was the heaviest on record at 2250 pounds. The were also a pair of twins, scampering around in the field. Twins in Bison is quite rare. The highlight for children and adults was to feed these gentle giants from a tram which does a circuit of the property. The site is definitely worth a visit.

From the Bison farm we raced northward to intercept a storm about 50 miles notth of Cheyenne. While this storm showed some potential with some wind shear and rotation, the cold air shut off the energy flow into the storm and by early evening it was time to call it a day.
