Our first sight into the Badlands Park was of some deer bouncing across the fields.
The prairie dogs were so cute. They made a lot of noise. They kept barking the whole time we were there. It almost sounded like they were singing to each other.
Munching on some leaves.
Bighorn sheep along the road. I had to get a picture of the smaller baby. The adults would not turn around.
More bighorn sheep along the road. I took this while my sister slowly drove by since we were in an area where there was no place to pull off. We didn't see any males with the big horns, only females and juveniles.
Our three hour drive through Badlands National Park was full of wildlife. I think my favorite part was the prairie dogs. They were scurrying around the field. The biggest disappointment was that I only saw one bird. A lone vulture flying high up in the sky. Well, I also didn't see any snakes. There were signs at all of the paths and boardwalks to watch out for rattlesnakes. It would have been cool to see at least one from far away. Lucky, I haven't crossed any in the parks in Florida although I've heard there's a few at Fort Desoto. After the Badlands we stopped in Wall, South Dakota before heading to our hotel in Rapid City. Wall has a 76,000 square feet tourist shop. We bought some fudge and hit the bathrooms before heading out. Next stop, Mount Rushmore!
