Wednesday Near Wyoming -- April 18, 2018

When you think of South Dakota, you probably think of Mount Rushmore, but did you know that there's a jewel of a state park close by it?

Custer State Park is famous for its bison herd (more than 1,000 of them roam the park), and other wildlife, including one of my favorites: prairie dogs. But for me and many other visitors, the highlights are the scenic drives, including the 14-mile Needles Highway.
The twisting road through the forest provides  views of the granite spires that rise like needles into the sky. Magnificent; simply magnificent.

For more information, visit the park's website. And, if you're traveling to the Black Hills area, don't miss Custer and the Needles Highway.
