It was a long drive to bear country … at least thats what it felt like. (Mom side note: it was a 4 min drive…)
Anyway bear country is not just bears it has big horn sheep, timber wolves, arctic wolves, otters, porcupine, beavers, badgers, bear cubs, and more.
My favorite were the bear cubs. They were adorable. We also went to the gift shop. Lincoln got a wolf toy thing. Logan on the other hand got a toy gun. Greg got a small fluffy black bear. And I got a bear that is wearing a sweatshirt that says Bear Country USA.
Later we went to Dinosaur Park. It was fun except it was really hot. We climbed the triceratops, the T-rex, the apatosaurus, the stegosaurus, and the iguanodon. Then we went to downtown Rapid City for dinner. We ate at Firehouse. It was a good meal.
