Today we started driving south from our campground and went through Custer State Park. This is another beautiful park that sets aside a huge amount of land - mostly rolling plains and grasslands - for wild animals. They have a road that goes through the Park and then out the southern exit. This Park has a lot of Bison (We found out that Buffalo are in Africa, and the US has Bison, but since the first explorers over ...
