Custer Park Wild Life Loop

Today we drove through Custer State Park - the Wildlife Loop. By the time we got there it was about 11:30 so we didn't see a whole bunch of animals. We did see some burros behind a fence with people stopping to pet them. Then we saw a pretty large herd of buffalo. We stopped and took photos as they strolled leisurely across the road. They're quite confident they have the right-of-way and because they're as large as some cars, they do!!! The scenery in the park is awesome. First you're up in the pines then you drop down into rolling prairie dotted with one or two trees. If anyone had told me I was going to fall in love with South Dakota I would have said they were crazy. I love this area and would like to spend much more time here.
