South Dakota Trip: Bear Country

Outside of Rapid City, SD, is a place called Bear Country USA. It sounds lame but it's kind of awesome. Here they've got habitats where forest animals can roam (within reason) and you can drive through and see them... up close. (Note: All these pictures were taken from our van.)


Bighorn Sheep

Mountain Goats (shedding its winter coat)

Mountain Lions

And Stephen Colbert's #1 Threat to America... Bears

More Bears

Bear on a Log

And Timber Wolves

Timber Wolves and Bears together, intimidating each other over food (the wolf got the bear away from the meat, amazingly enough)

And another bear

Kinsey with a bear (not a real one)

This was actually pretty fun and a nice way to spend an afternoon in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
