Because of the recent storms, which dropped quite a bit of snow at the higher elevations, we were not able to complete the Norbeck Byway - it's a loop road. We were able to do short portions of either end of it. Because this byway skirts Custer State Park we decided to take the parks wildlife loop road. We also wanted to check out what was going on with the buffalo that had been rounded up last week. I'll let the photos tell the story of what's happening with the buffalo.
If you should ever find yourself in this part of the country we would recommend both Custer State park and the Norbeck Byway. Custer State Park has campgrounds, cabins and a lodge, all of which require reservations during the summer season. And, we've learned that the most scenic portions of the byway close after the first snow fall - so plan accordingly!!
