Today was a leisurely 318-mile drive from Dickinson, ND to Billings, MT. We arrived early enough to stop by Zoo Montana which turned out to be a disappointment. There were few animals although the two bears were entertaining.
We spent all morning and part of the afternoon in the South section of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The terrain was a bit more interesting than the North section and we say countless bison –some very up-close–, wild horses, and prairie dogs.
