Partial species list from my trip to the Black Hills
• Bald eagle
• Belted kingfisher
• Bighorn sheep
• Black-tailed gopher
• Mountain bluebird
• Mountain goat
• Pronghorn antelope
All new to me in the wild except the eagle and kingfisher. I didn’t list common species like turkey vultures, horses, longhorn and other types of cattle, etc.
My third time in a helicopter.
One of the most amazing roads I’ve ever ridden, which will force me to reevaluate my favorites back east.
Approximately 3300 miles round trip in the car and still speaking to my wife.
