Buffalo in Custer State Park
Custer State Park is a wonderful place for a leisurely, sometimes exciting drive through the beautiful Black HIlls. We hit the jackpot for buffalo today. We saw several hundred of the 1500 or so that are in the park. They chose to stand on or lie down beside the road, thrilling the tourists. Cameras were clicking like crazy. For some excitement—we watched a motorcyclist next to a mama and her calf, who, when he gunned his motor was charged suddenly by the angered mother. He barely zoomed out of her reach in time. "Buffalo are dangerous," say the signs, "do not approach".
