Custer State Park

Saturday we started the day by hiking Grace Coolidge's Inland Fishing Trail. Named after his wife, this was a favorite place for President Coolidge to go fishing. Naturally it had a stream which we had to cross, 28 times over the 6 mile hike. Several had logs or rocks you could cross without getting wet, but with all the rain up here, the creek was quite high. It was above my knees on several crossings. But we had fun. Joshua waded upstream and caught up with me at the next stream crossing. Of course, he fell and had to get very wet.

The black in the center is Joshua when he is wading upstream.

Later in the evening we drove the Wildlife Loop in Custer State Park. We saw bison, wild turkeys, even a mother hen and her babies crossing the road, antelope and deer.

But this fellow decided he wanted to see the inside of my car.

One little baby bunny wouldn't even move from in front of the car so I had Joshua get out and help the baby along.
