Badlands Prairie Dog looms large

Giant Concrete Prairie Dog

Hwy 240 Badlands Loop
Cactus Flats, SD
Concrete gem

This funky pink and yellow concrete dog stands guard at the Ranch Store, near the entrance of the Badlands National Park. The anorexic steer sign atop the store might even be better. You can also feed real prairie dogs (although at another entrance into the park, we were warned that the prairie dogs were “infected”…whatever that means.)
