Custer State Park, South Dakota

We made our way to Custer State Park, just a short distance from Mount Rushmore. It is South Dakota's largest and 1st state park and wildlife reserve, as well as the 2nd largest state park in the United States.

In 1927, President Calvin Coolidge named it his summer White House and popularity of the park grew. The park spans over 71,000 acres and boasts over 1,500 free-roaming bison.

As you can see, winter was not quite over.

Watch out for falling rock!!!!!!

Bambi greets you as you drive along.

Kind of a tight squeeze!!

Doug thinks I don't have eyes in the back of my head.

Is it safe to come out? Or are they going to take another picture?

Buffaloes Roam

You can see who has the right of way here.

I wonder when this grass is going to start growing.

We weren't sure what this animal was until we looked it up and discovered it was a pronghorn antelope.

Sometimes when you live in an RV, you find yourself a long way from the grocery store. You have to make the most of it when you are close to one.

This is how we finished our day. As you can see, never go to the store when you are hungry.
