we stopped to see the prairie dog we was amazed of the number of dogs that was there. It only cost us $1.00 a bag for peanuts. We spent about 30 min. there and took several pictures.

It was fun watching the kids run through the field if prairie dog home's and listen to the sound of the prairie dogs. This is just a field though so don't expect much else. Fun to see though.

Stop here, for a bored teenager.....best spent buck for food to feed the doggies and entertain the kid. Well, actually, it entertained all of us. Cute little critters, with personality. Watch out for the holes, most are easily seen but some are not.

About five miles down the gravel road you'll find this interesting place. Bring your camera, also many bison along the way.

Lots of pups out and about in late may. Keep an eye out for the burrowing owls as they inhabit the same area.
