Volksmarching, Wildlife & RVing in South Dakota

I think it annoys God if you walk by the color purple in a field
and don’t notice.
                                                                                    – Alice Walker

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.

Custer State Park in South Dakota
North Stockade Lake

Custer State Park is one of the largest state parks in our nation. It’s also the home of  1,300 bison. Kevin and I camped at North Stockade Lake Campground in Custer State Park. We had electric, picnic table, fire pit and a nice view. The first morning we saw several turkeys walking around the campground.

We drove the Wildlife loop and saw the herd of bison.  A beautiful Pronghorn Antelope was grazing just above the hill from the bison herd. The bison herd had several calves. The calves looked so cute. The herd was spread out on two hills.

Hiking

Kevin and I went on a 10 kilometer hike in Custer State Park. The hike was called Grace Coolidge Walk-in Fishing Area. The hiking trail was well maintained. We crossed several wooden foot bridge on the walk. The wooden foot bridges consisted of a piece of wood laid across a stream. We did see some wildlife along the trail and spotted a new bird for our life list. The new bird for our life list is a Black-capped Chickadee. The Black-capped Chickadee flew in the trees along the trail. Its like Christmas day when we find a new bird for our life list.

Happy RVing!

Next, Kevin and I will be traveling in Nebraska to explore Scotts Bluff National Monument & Agate Fossil Beds National Monument.

  1. So happy to see all the Volksmarches you’re doing. Looks like you’re enjoying all aspects of your travels – animals, caves, farmer’s markets, hikes, national parks and monuments. You’re my kind of traveler. We’ll be traveling a lot more in the next year. I can’t wait!!
