Epic Road Trip-Day Ten

We were staying 3 nights in Rapid City, South Dakota because there is just so much to see and do here. After breakfast, we drove to Bear Country USA. This is a drive through animal park where you need to keep your windows rolled up because the animals are taking a look at you. It was amazing to see them this way. We saw mule deer, reindeer, wolves, mountain goats, big horn sheep, bison, pronghorn, and bears. One of the big horn sheep teenagers headbutted our right side mirror, but luckily didn't break or dent anything. The bears were fantastic. They walked right up to the car but they are so used to the cars they ignore you and go on their way.  We also walked to the baby nursery and saw baby bears, foxes, a badger, skunks and baby pronghorn. Here's a few pictures:
