... to keep our windows rolled up as the animals are roaming freely. The drive was amazing! Buffalo , reindeer walking about, right next to our vehicle! When we drove through the bear area, we were surrounded by roaming bears- stopping in front of and on the side of our car! So cute!!
... in the other post about Mount Rushmore, we returned later than expected but we managed to pack up, fill our water tank in the campground and head out. Even though I don't like gravel roads, we actually took a short cut across a dirt road on the south side of Wind Cave NP which saved us 13 miles and 2 gallons of gas. Plus we got to drive through more of the prairie.
