Wildlife in Custer State Park

After our big day trip to Devil's Tower, we got up before dawn the next morning and headed into Custer State Park. We knew that the early morning was our best chance to see the most wildlife and we wanted to get to the more remote areas of the park around sunrise. I am so glad we did! This was the closest thing to being on Safari that I have ever experienced. We saw lots of bison, a big herd of elk, coyote, wild burros, huge prairie dog towns, dozens of pronghorn, deer, and wild birds of every sort.

(note: Wind Cave National Park is adjacent to Custer State Park)

Here are some related articles that I enjoyed:
