        Today, we left camp around 11:30am and headed out for Custer State Park. We took the "Scenic Wildlife Loop" and that it was. Right off the bat, we saw a bison bull grazing all alone. We saw another one and we saw a few prong horn "antelope". The scenery was spectacular and we were in awe most of the time. Later on into the tour, we saw burrows, right close to the road, some prong horn "bucks" fighting in the road. They even circled a car ...

        From the museum we went to Mount Rushmore. We did not go there in 2010 due ...

        ... We were surprised that it wasn't more crowded. On our way back to the RV park, the boys stopped off for a dip in the cold waters at Sylvan Lake.

        ... recently judging by the fact that the brown strip was still wet. We then dubbed US-385 as the "Fecal Trail" and for us it will always be known by that name.

We did eventually catch up with what we believe to be the offender, but it was empty, and by then it was no longer marking the trail.
