Up close and personal

What a beautiful and fun day we had today.  We packed a picnic and headed to Custer State Park where the scenery was breathtaking. We took the Wild Life Loop first and saw bunches of bison up close and personal, a herd of them walked right by the jeep as we sat in the road. We also saw some prairie dogs, pronghorns, "wild" burros, and deer.  We then traveled over Needles Highway which is 14 miles of winding roads, hairpin turns and several very small tunnels that have been blasted out of the solid granite rock. We then stopped at Sylvan Lake Resort and General Store which is considered the crown jewel of Custer State Park. We wondered around the lake and store had ice cream and then called it a day.
