I would recommend taking Sage Creek Rim Road to check out Roberts Prairie Dog Town especially if you're going west anyway. Kids are sure to enjoy watching these little critters. Roll down your windows and listen as they alert other prairie dogs by barking.

We spent quite a bit of time watching and listening to the many prairie dogs here. I was able to take great photos and videos of them. There are hundreds if not thousands of them it seems here. Take the time to enjoy them!

Oh my goodness there are so many prairie dogs here it's amazing. And, on both sides of the road. Please drive slow because they will dash out onto the pavement.
