Feral horses run free in the south unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. This guy didn’t seem to mind our presence as we photographed him with his band. They lazily moved along in the almost hour we spent observing them.
It’s National Park Week. April 20 -28, 2019
….and a wonderful time to visit the north and south units of Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota.
In the far distance, from atop the terminus of Boicourt Trail in the south unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, wild horses and bison can be observed.
It’s Beautiful Out There.
A distant herd of bison in the North Unit, at the far end of the scenic drive, near the Oxbow Overlook. That day, there were several small herds on the prairie. Later they moved down in to the Little Missouri River Valley.

There’s plenty of wild life waiting for you!
If there is one thing to be sure of when traveling through Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota, it is that you will be entertained by prairie dogs! They command attention!
A warm early spring day is a good day to hunker down and nap in the south unit of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
This huge bison was comfortable as can be in the south unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. His mouth was moving, and we wondered what he was telling us!
Long Horn Cattle reside in the north unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota.
A small herd of mule deer didn’t seem to mind our presence as we drove slowly past them on an early spring visit to Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota. They browsed slowly through a large prairie dog town.
At the first prairie dog town up the hill in the South Unit, a bull elk paused to watch us go by. It was early December, and though it was cold, it was not very snowy.
One of many bands of wild (feral horses) to be found in the south unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota.
