Custer State Park and Mount Rushmore

Sorry that I am late with our update from yesterday!!

Wow, what a day!! We saw so much beautiful scenery that it is going to be hard to describe and do it justice.

First we started our road trip through Custer State Park and what a gorgeous place. We saw trees, hills, mountain streams, and wildlife. Some of our pictures will help describe it better. We got pictures of wild turkey, pronghorn, bison/buffalo and burros. And we went wild taking pictures of the scenery.

As we were taking the scenic drive through Custer State Park, we took a side trip to Mount Rushmore. Again, beautiful scenery!! And such a great tribute to some of our past presidents.
Then, back into the state park and the Needles Highway. And, words definitely cannot describe how awesome this drive was. It is named the Needles Highway for a reason, there is a rock formation that looks like the eye of a needle. We also saw a mountain climber actually tackling one of the formations.

So, enjoy the pictures (these are only a few of many)  and let us know what you think. We are going to check out Hot Springs and the scenic drive to and from there today.
