Custer State Park, South Dakota: Wildlife Loop Road
The big star of Wildlife Loop Road is the buffalo herd. There are hundreds and hundreds roaming around the park, and about 500 turned up here in their stroll. As you can see, the animals think this is their park and that we're just visiting ... and they are right. So the cars wait for the road to clear.
Other animals often can be viewed on the road. There are a few burros in the park, and they are pretty friendly. Prairie dogs and pronghorns pop up as well.
