Needles Trail

Several years ago a huge wind blew through the wooded area of the Park and blew down thousands of trees. This happened along the Needles Trail, and there is still work being done to clean up the area and re-route the trail.

Prairie Dogs

These cute, frisky rodents are associated with some nasty side effects. There are often rattlesnakes in and around dog towns, and they carry flees which in turn carry bubonic plague. Ranchers strongly object to their holes which can break livestock's legs. But they are fine in the State Park where the buffalo and antelope don't seem bothered.

While the tools of a fine wood worker can be shown, his skill is more difficult to see. He built the cabinets shown here to hold his planes. He lives in Spearfish, SD.
