  • The prairie dogs are fun to watch! Once you know what they are, you'll notice them in other places and states. Some tourists got too close --- even though they had telephoto lens. The prairie dogs are more active and comfortable when you give them space and wait patiently. They seem to be out all day.
  • This is worth the drive on the dirt road! The prairie dogs were so cute and there were >100 of them! It looked like there were adolescents playing when we visited in late August. Also on the drive to the prairie dog town, we saw 2 bighorn sheep and a bison (e didn't see any on the main, paved park roads). We took the dirt road in a sedan car with no problems.
