The Friendly Burros
We were afraid we wouldn't see any bison. Not to worry.
The Lakota name for bison is Tatanka. The Lakota tribe is the first known inhabitants of this area.
Here's some immature Bighorn Sheep.
Good viewing today.
Quick quiz- how did the Black Hills get it's name?
When the native Lakota tribe first came here hundreds of years ago, they saw hills covered with Ponderosa pines. The trunk of the ponderosa is black and the hills looked dark. The Lakotas called it Paha Sapa. ( Hills of Black)
We spotted some interesting stuff in town too.
There is a brewery here in the town of Custer called Mt. Rushmore.
They also have a restaurant.
We spotted this bar seating at a gift shop/watering hole.
