Wild Life loop in Custer State Park, SD
Day 7 Oreville NFCG, SD:

Stayed set up at Oreville NFCG for another day. Headed through Custer SP, SD Wildlife loop. Stopped at the VC for S&P and then took a short loop off the main road where got to see bison up close and personal! They walked right by our windows and across the road only a few feet from the front of the truck. They had a bunch of calves. It was a pretty good “Critter” day with sightings of Big Horn Sheep (right next to the road), prairie dogs, rabbits, and PH antelope. Jenna earned another Junior Ranger badge. Then another long drive back to Oreville NFCG.
