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 thought the other day, that I haven’t talked about the dogs in a long time. Plus, today is National Dog Day. So what have the Dogs been up to?
Well, they are great. I’m pretty sure they are glad art shows are done for a bit. Those days get long for them. When we do our shows in Teton Village, we can have them with us, but that’s not always an easy solution. Mostly, they hang out in the RV, and we take turns walking them for potty breaks. This year a fellow artist, and really great friend was invaluable in helping with them. They were parked next to us, and she would take them out when when I couldn’t. It was such a nice feeling knowing she could let them out, if we couldn’t leave the show.
Last Saturday we moved to the Kofa national wildlife refuge. We have stayed here before, and wanted to spend time here again, because it’s just so beautiful. The mountains to the east are unbelievably beautiful, morning or evening. Well, all day for that matter. On this particular morning, the sunrise was exceptional.
In the evening, the mountain glows with the last light of the day.
