As I related in the last post,Molly wanted to go to Mount Rushmore. I wanted to see buffalo and buffalo calves. Here is a teaser of what Molly got while we were there.
Rented a “SUV”–2016 Nissan Pathfinder for the trip. It exceeded our expectations in cargo room and ran 80+ (speed limit in South Dakota)for hours on end with no hiccups.
We stayed at Legion Lake Lodge cabins (Custer State Park-maintained by the State of Dakota).
The Lodge was in the process of being renovated but the cabin was nice and we had one of the 3 lakeside units.
Side note: Nothing like having a herd of bison/buffalo stop traffic on a state highway–
Most were old bulls and the description we used for them was ‘Big Boy McCoys’–they are massive and they definitely have the right of way
Molly has a tale to tell about a close encounter with a mama buffalo.
