Continuing on my
journey I opted to go see the Crazy Horse monument, but I was too late.They were still open and the museum was
wonderful to see. I only say I was too late because the monument is still being
carved and there was a triple blast just before I got there.Due to time restrictions there were only two
more necessary stops along the way back home; one of those was the Badlands, and the other Grandma’s house. Being closer to
the Badlands, I opted to go there first.From where I was it only made sense to drive
through CusterState Park to start heading back east
and that was how I went.I drove slowly
to enjoy the scenery and in hope of seeing a buffalo.Before I saw a buffalo however, I came across
several mule deer, which to my amazement were not afraid of me or my truck.Yet again I took pictures.By now I was getting close to the park exit
and was a bit disappointed that I had seen no buffalo; but then I rounded the
bend and in the last 20 feet of Park that was left there stood a solitary
Bison.I took his picture and rolled on.
I stopped for dinner back in Rapid
City, and then continued to Wall, SD where I stayed
