The Black Hills of South Dakota
Bear Country USA, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument
|Our first stop once we entered the Black Hills of South Dakota was at Bear Country USA. If you ever make it to this area, this is a must see park! The animals were in large enclosures that mimicked their natural habitat and they all looked so healthy! Especially the bears!|
|Scruffy Elk, just getting their antlers in.|
|My favorite picture of the lot! This is an artic wolf, the park had them separate from the other wolves, not sure why.|
|More Artic Wolves|
Big Horn Sheep
Rocky Mountain Goats
Bears and Wolves, for some reason they had the Black Bears and the Grey Wolves in the same enclosure.
|This guy looked like a big ole teddy bear, his coat was so thick and shiny, just looked like he'd be great to cuddle with (yeah I know, I'm deranged!)|
|Two shots of another black bear.|
|Ooooh, get that itch!|
