My great friends Amy and Rod Burkert spent all of 2017 traveling to each state with their two dogs, Ty and Buster. They visited one pet friendly attraction in each state, and she has written a book about their trip to help people plan their own pet friendly vacations.
Amy created a virtual road trip for the month of October, to share some of those places through other bloggers who have visited them. I am thrilled to be a part of the virtual road trip, and share our experience visiting dog friendly Custer State Park in South Dakota.
We went to Custer to see the bison roundup, and participate in the art show that was the end of September. The first few days we were there, we camped at Legion Lake campground. Having never been to Custer before, I wasn’t sure what to expect, and we were very happy with our camp spot.
I just got back from 4 days with the wild horses. It was mostly an all girl wild horse trip, and we really had a great time.
A friend of mine that lives here in Utah has a friend that lives on Vashon in Washington, and we met when we stayed there a few years ago. She mentioned a month or so ago she would really like to see the wild horses again. Her and her hubby stopped here last winter, but they didn’t have the best of wild horse luck. Anyway, I told her we would be here in October and if she wanted to visit, that would be a great time. So, Al drove the RV out to the desert on Tuesday and dropped us off. Mary, my friend, drove her car and we were all set.
This post is just a quick smattering of some of the many, many photos I took. Karen, and Mary left on Thursday morning, Al drove out that morning and stayed the night, then we shot photos yesterday until around 1. So, I haven’t had the chance to even go through everything yet.
It was nice to see the foals that were just small last May, growing up healthy and strong.
I like to walk in new and different places. I mentioned yesterday we spent the night last week at Independence Rock in Wyoming. We have been here before, but it’s always so interesting. This was a big marker for the people traveling the Oregon trail in the mid to late 1800’s. Names are etched in the rock all over. The evening we were there, we decided to walk around and stretch everyone’s legs.
The prompt for this weeks 2 Lil Owls is On a walk, so perfect. Al is checking out a few of the names.
