Day 9...

 Today we traveled about  2 hours from the Badlands to Keystone to see Mt. Rushmore.  It was pretty cool definitely something you just have to see when you're that close.  I told Matt I felt like I should just cross my heart and say the pledge of allegiance...I did not but sure felt like it!

 We then headed about 20 more miles to our new destination for two nights...Custer State Park.  It's famous for its roaming bison.  This was a little lake we stopped at around dust tonight. 
 Our family pics like this.
Sure enough when we got into the park a bit, there was a huge Bison (or buffalo, we read it means the same thing) right there walking in the street. Pretty cool, pretty amazing.  We also saw about 30 deer as we did a little drive through as well.

It's really crazy that just this morning we were in the sandy what looked like dessert scape and tonight we are in more of a mountainous, foresty landscape.
