We decided to do the Jeep Safari in Custer State Park and were lucky enough to get a driver who took us to the top of Gobblers Knob. Bouncing over the rough road was more like an amusement park ride, but we loved it. Here are the views from there:
The safari included glimpses of wildlife, such as this pronghorn.
Sorry, no zoom lens on the iPad.
Our driver said the pronghorn is the fastest land mammal in the Western Hemisphere. They can run 60 miles per hour!
Of course, you can’t go through Custer State Park without seeing the main attraction, bison:
Sweet mules came right up to the Jeep looking for food. . . .
Speaking of sweet, we found out from one of my cousins that there was a pie shop in Custer that served the best pie à la mode. She was right!
The Purple Pie Place lives up to its name for sure:
This blackberry pie was some of the best I’ve ever had.
Wonderfully flaky crust, berries that were neither too tart nor cloying; unbelievably creamy vanila ice cream that complemented perfectly. I’d love to have some right now.
Hope your week’s going well. . . .
