WYOMING — Imagine that you're driving along state Highway 230, just south of Encampment, Wyoming, when you see a handful of antelope gracefully bounding across the road ahead.

"Such beautiful creatures," you say to yourself as you begin to slow your vehicle. "It's always a pleasure to see a few of them on my way home from work."

Then the ground begins to shake and you hear the roar of countless hooves pummeling the snow all around you. To your left, you see hundreds of antelope crowding toward the highway. Like wildebeests at a river's edge, they leap over the fence and make their way toward your car.

"That's quite a lot of antelope," you mutter.

But something's not quite right. Sure, there are numerous antelope coming down the hillside. But the tumultuous shaking of the ground makes you feel that there's a much larger mass of antelope nearby.

You look to the other side of the highway and that's when you realize that you've stumbled upon an antelope migration of epic proportions. It's like an old Cecil B. DeMille movie with a "cast of thousands," because you see a seemingly never-ending line of antelope moving off into the distance.

Now that you've imagined this stunning scenario, you can watch it in this video:

How many antelope are in this video? The caption claims there were at least 20,000. My counting skills aren't what they used to be, so I have no idea if that's an accurate estimate.

To play it safe, let's just agree that the video features "oodles and oodles of antelope." Nobody can argue with that.
