Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

I have just returned from a family vacation to South Dakota.  A highlight of the adventure was a visit to the ever-so-lovely Custer State Park in the Mount Rushmore area of the state.

This state park is chock-full of large wild animals.  Yes, the enormous pastures where the buffalo (American Bison) roam are fenced but the animals really do run freely in the grasslands.  A road for tourists to drive through the area is the best way to see the bison, pronghorn, deer, prairie dogs, and the friendly wild donkeys that call the park home.

I have been to this park three times now and enjoy it quite a lot!  I want to wish everyone a happy Independence Day tomorrow (July 4th). Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of each picture.  Enjoy!

  1. We’ve been to Custer and LOVED it….. You captured some great pictures… Makes me want to go back… Have you been through the tunnel at Needles near that area? AWESOME….

    Happy 4th to you.

    • Hi Betsy, Glad you reminded me about Needles – no, still have never gotten there. We had a family birthday to attend (CA and SD family members were all together so we got to see folks we rarely get to spend time with and love). Have a great Independence Day! Enjoy the fireworks!
