The crazy critters of Custer State Park.
This photo comes courtesy of another park employee, Stella. It’s funny how the buffalo can go from majestic & a little scary to completely stupid-looking in a matter of seconds.
Just casually having breakfast.
Everything is a scratching post. Everything.

Thissssss little guy greeted me on the way to work the other day.
These guys seem to love creating a traffic jam on the main highway.
So many buffalo!

Bye bye blackbird
I’m pretty proud of this adorable picture – it went a little viral online. And I mean, who doesn’t need a hug on a Monday?
Just blocking traffic. No big deal.
“They use WHAT do make dog food?!”
This is what happens when you stick your camera blindly out the window to get a shot of the herd.
Hereeeee birdy birdy. This one had a really pretty song.
Baby animals – they’re all so cute.
Honk. I dare you.
Not only do I have to look out for buffalo on the roads, but now cows are causing problems as well. Moo.
“Hahaha you can’t hunt me because I live in a state park.”
The daily bath.
Curiousity almost never got the best of a buffalo.
Oh, how horrible it would be to have an itch and no fingers to scratch it with.
A cute calf getting a bite.
Just hanging out.
These guys were running and jumping around like they had fleas before they all decided to charge my car. It was really weird.

Tweet tweet! It’s a Western Tanager.
We’re not supposed to, but we totally feed the chipmonks sometimes.
This was the only brave turtle who didn’t dive into Center Lake with his 12 buddies when I came upon them unexpectedly.
