Wind Cave Landscape

Driving both our parks, Custer State Park and Wind Cave National Park, it is hard to believe now the devastation brought upon them by Legion Lake Fire in December. Some places show the obvious scars, the scorched or torched trees, the scars from the cleanup logging operations, but other places have been left even more pristine than they were before. In grasslands, you just get used to the landscape always looking a little dull because of the clinging remnants of last year’s grasses, until the fleeting part of the summer when everything is at its prime and is almost too green. But this is so different, so clean.
