Buffalo Sightings

After we explored Mount Rushmore, we went on to Custer State Park because we heard that is where the buffalo roam!!!  We were not disappointed! We also stopped by the fish hatchery again, because Braden LOVED it there and wanted to share the experience with his dad!!!





















Mount Rushmore

This was an iconic stop on our trip out West!  We've always wanted to visit Mount Rushmore and here we are!  It was an awesome experience and so amazing to see in person.  We found a fun little diner for lunch after our adventure at Mount Rushmore.

Deadwood, South Dakota

Our next stop was Deadwood, South Dakota!  We stayed at Whistler Gulch Campground and could walk into town!  We were just there for a week, but we managed to see a "gunfight" reenactment in town, we ate dinner at an old Wild West Saloon and Bryan and I tried our luck in a casino (the town is line with them!)  While in the area, we checked out the local fish hatchery and learned some history of the surrounding area!  We went to a wonderful museum and learned so much about the Wild West!  Here are some of our favorite memories!!!!
