It should also be mentioned here that the Black Hills offered up more wildlife in one day then I can ever remember seeing (not at a zoo). We found ourselves at one point surrounded by a herd of Buffalo. We put the Prius in EV mode and just chilled. It was awesome to be with them so close, having only seen them ever from far off ...
