Hello my friends, I hope your day is going great!
I promised that I would show you the animals that we saw while in the Black Hills of South Dakota, there were more than I had anticipated, actually.
The first animals that we saw were wild turkeys, but unfortunately, we did not get a photo of them. A little further up we saw this lone buffalo grazing in a park.
There were several deer in that same area, too.
Next, we took the Wildlife Loop and we saw these darling Burros. Our daughter Marissa and I would have gladly adopted any or all of them, we fell in love with their friendly faces.
He had cockle burrs all over his forehead, poor fellow.
As you can see they were not afraid of humans, this one would have put his head in my lap if I hadn't closed the window before he got a chance to.
The next one we saw a little further up, was a real Eeyore, he had a droopy head and we didn't stop to talk to him. He looked at us as if to say "I didn't expect that you would stop to say hello, no one ever does." He just stood looking at us with his sad droopy eyes, then walked away.
This lovely log house was in the Wild Life Loop, it wasn't open when we passed, I think it was a place where you could get information on the wildlife there.
The State Game Lodge (above)
The State Game Lodge served as the "Summer White House" for President Calvin Coolidge in 1927 and was visited by President Dwight D. Eisenhower for several days in 1953. It was built in 1920, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The lodge features historic lodge rooms, newly renovated hotel rooms and pine-shaded cabins. ~Custer State Park information guide
We saw this buffalo near the State Game Lodge.
And lastly, we saw the Pronghorns.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the wild animals of the Black Hills.
Have a wonderful day!
