With Tim still working, Garrett and I headed into Rapid City in the morning to let Sassy play for a little bit at the dog park. This dog park was awesome!! It even had a creek for Sassy to try her first time in water. She was loving it!!
Lots of fun playing with the other dogs. One of them even looked like Chloe!!
We then headed home to get Grandma Sutton and take a drive. This area is just so beautiful!!
Some cars fitting through the tunnel.
A chipmunk giving us a show!!
We then made our way to Bear Country USA. From the comfort of our vehicle we were able to observe black bears, elk, mountain lions, buffalo, reindeer and other wildlife in their natural environment. First up were the Elk, Wolves and Bighorn Sheep!!
Then came the mountain goats and their babies. So darn cute!!
Then we were driving through to see the bears. These bears wanted through this gated area so badly!!
We then parked the car and headed into their area where you could walk and see the animals. The one and only Grizzly bear.
Garrett liked the tree with the animals in it :)
Watching the raccoons.....
Reading about beavers and then one came out to visit. He really gave us a show!
Lots of hands on stuff here. I highly recommend this for kids. Garrett was able to try to pick up really heavy antlers and touch and feel all kinds of animal fur!
Big difference between Garrett and a black bear and grizzly!!
I believe these were bobcats.
Then we came upon the baby bear cubs. OMG, they were sooooo cute!!!!
Then there was a couple of them that were playing in the trees. It was so much fun to just sit and watch them play.
Then these 2 bear cubs started wrestling with each other. Probably Garrett's favorite part of the whole time we were here. He really enjoyed watching them!!
Then we saw the coyote and red fox.
Was a really great day!! We have been enjoying having Grandma here with us!!
