Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Buffalo at Custer State Park wildlife loop

Buffalo at Custer State Park wildlife loop

There are few guarantees in life, but one is that you will see a buffalo along the Custer State Park wildlife loop road in South Dakota. My first tatanka was this group walking through the forest up on a hill. This beast turned to look, and I could see his breath in the cold air. A shiver went through my spine as I felt like one of the early pioneers like Lewis and Clark peering at these animals for the first time. Then I took out a shotgun and shot them all for their hides only. Couldn’t they have at least made wings?

Stay tuned,
