I am sharing this post once again with Stephanie's Roses of Inspiration link up . Last week there was a lot of Autumn Inspiration now that we are into our new season, wonder what this week will hold.
Now to share the last half of our day, after we left Mt. Rushmore and had a bite to eat in town we went on to Custer State park.
I spotted these Pronghorns first. It was a bit better picture than I got at the Badlands.
Then we stopped at the visitors station inside the park and the gentlemen told us what part of the park the buffalo were last sighted so we headed that way and wow did we find them. You can see the shadow of our car in this picture to let you know how close they were.
This one I took through the windshield of the car as they were crossing the road in front of us, needless to say I drove through this area never using the gas, very slowly so if they decided to dart across the road I would have no problem stopping, it was so neat to watch them move around and interact with each other.
A neat wooden bridge we drove over, we decided to get out and take some pictures of the stream running under it, yep that's my hubby down there in the center.
This was the view once I made it to the center of the bridge.
There is nothing better that God has blessed us with then a combination of water trees and mountains, in my opinion, there is just something about it that brings me peace and I feel so close to him, we spent a bit of time here as there was no one else on the road at the time.
Then we headed up a drive that we were told about back where we ate lunch, I could have shared so many pictures of what lead up to this point but at the top this is the rock formation that is up there and it is called the Needle eye. The sun was setting at this point.
There were many tunnels on this drive through the rock but since they had an area to get out and park at here at the needle I was able to get a shot of the tunnel you drive through just before the needle area.
And my last is the same area just looking down, I thought this was neat how the trees are growing in all that rock.
We left here and made our way down the mountain, we were glad we left when we did since it is very dark and a lot of turns and twist getting back down, when we reached the bottom there was a turn off and we parked there and just checked out the beautiful night sky without all the lights of town, an amazing sight we don't see out here in the city. If you get the chance I would encourage you to take the trip out there, just amazing land God has blessed us with to enjoy!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by, thanks so much for your sweet comments on my cards and the pictures of my trip so far.
