Back to Custer State Park
Today we drove up into Custer State Park. Soon after driving into the park, we got caught in a wildlife traffic jam. Several female Bighorn Sheep were standing just at the edge of the road. They came to the hill to get minerals.
The mountains in this park are amazing.
After a drive up the very narrow dirt road up, we arrived a the top of Mt. Coolidge Lookout. The view was incredible.
Crazy Horse faces the lookout. We could also see the Cathedral Spires, the back of Rushmore and Black Elk Peak with Harney Lookout.
We hoped to see buffalo (yep still not calling them bison) and were not disappointed. First was a HUGE bull. He was just off the road.
Later we found the herd. The wildlife traffic jam was super long. A huge group all over a field by the road which include bulls, cows, and lots and lots of calves.
Some of the moms were feeding their babies.
This big bull walked calmly between cars knowing that everyone would stop and wait. Then he stood on a small hill watching the tourist pass by him.
The last animals we saw were burros. There were even babies.
When we got back to the RV park, a really amazing cloud came over.
