"Custer State Park in South Dakota. Where else can you get caught in a traffic jam because of a passing buffalo herd?" —Kaeli Conforti

Custer State Park, SD, just welcomed its first baby bison of 2018 and the little cinnamon-furred critter will steal your heart.

Sometimes just the right image, or moving image, is worth well over the fabled “thousand words.”

OUR FAVORITE VIDEO OF THE WEEK

When it comes to delivering spring-spiration to travelers weary of the cold weather (and as I’m typing this, a rare April snowfall is piling up outside my window), our contacts at one of America’s favorite parks have come through for us today. This video of the first baby bison born this year at Custer State Park, SD (travelsouthdakota.com), will steal your heart - and possibly inspire you to book a trip this spring or summer to South Dakota.

SOUTH DAKOTA MAY BE CALLING YOUR NAME

We love Custer State Park’s 1,300 free-roaming bison, and the fact that visitors to the park can see animals in their natural habitat along the park’s 18-mile Wildlife Loop. And we’re not just talking cute little cinnamon-furred baby bison but also herds of fully grown bison, majestic elk, stately bighorn sheep, and lots of deer.

Any visit to this region of South Dakota should also include stops in Rapid City, Mount Rushmore, and the Crazy Horse Memorial, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2018.
