One of the great places in the continental U.S. to get a good closeup look at wildlife. Wild burros, herds of Buffalo, prairie dog towns. Lots of wildlife in this out of the way corner of South Dakota.

    This is my favorite state park in America. Perhaps you should put up a "Warning" page for the burros. One of them butted me and almost knocked me over.

    Those pan handling burros made me laugh. Glad the buffalo aren't pan handlers. They might be harder to refuse.

    GLAD you did not feed the animals, but I think you should have included the warning that this park is the EXCEPTION to scenery in South Dakota. . .
