Custer State Park Wildlife Loop 2nd Time
Everyone butts heads now and again.
Finally got to see the burrows
Jim is warming up to a youngster.
Tom got worried when this guy began rubbing his head on the mirror.
Helicopter is chasing a herd of elk. Don’t know why? They seemed to flow over the ground as they moved. Quite a sight to see.
Wind Cave National Park
The original opening to Wind Cave. I wish you could see just how small this opening is. It really doesn’t look like a human of any size could squeeze through here.
There are basically three rules for touring Wind Cave. 1) No food or drink, 2) Stay with the group, and 3) never, ever touch any part of the cave. This little, old Japanese man really had a problem with rule #3.
Mike our guide was excellent. He combined a good mix of facts and humor. The funniest story he told was not about the cave, it was about a co-worker. This fellow went jogging every day and on this particular day he went out after dark. You need to know there are no street lights so it was pitch dark. Well he rand smack into a bison. Mike did not say exactly what happened after that.
