One of our most favorite parts of our South Dakota trip was driving Wildlife Loop Road in Custer State Park.
Even though we were visiting in an off season, we saw lots of wildlife!
Bison were everywhere.
The famed Wild Burros were few, but at least one friendly 'guy' made his way up to greet us!
This was a new animal to us. It is called a Pronghorn.
I do wish the visitor centers in this park had been open for us to learn more about the area and wildlife.
From there, we traveled onto the Needles Highway.
Truckin' Man LOVED this road. The twist's and turns, and tunnels were so fun for him.
I did not remember the altitude being so high. I guess when I traveled here back in the day with my parents, I did not have my fear of heights so it didn't mean anything to me back then.
If we aren't driving of the edge of a cliff, the height doesn't bother me as much
and this overlook was absolutely breath taking!
Of course, we had to take a peak at Mt. Rushmore.
Just how I remembered it.
Until next time!
