The south unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park contains a number of wild horses, and it was our great luck to cross paths with this small group in the afternoon.
As we continued along the park’s loop road we couldn’t avoid the resident prairie dogs: they’ve well-established towns in several locations close to the route. Go ahead, tell me you could resist.
Photographers who pursue landscapes instead of wildlife won’t be disappointed here either. There are panoramic views aplenty, and one can always get up-close-and-personal with a rock.
Theodore Roosevelt Park is unabashedly rugged and full of life, a fitting memorial to its namesake.
