Hello and welcome back. This is the third post (are you tired of hearing about how awesome Caprock Canyons State Park is yet??) in a collection of recaps about the cool things I encountered at this park. Obviously, the canyons take center state and after that, the bison. Click here for canyon photos and here for bison photos. But the most adorable creature is the feature in today’s post. I was so surprised to see them on the way to use the campground restroom that I could barely believe what I was seeing. A field full of prairie dogs! Chirping (or barking?) as if I was a pending threat! They were the cutest things I’ve ever seen and I want one. One of the first I got a picture of was howling out a tune and you can see the dedication in this first picture.
It just seemed to get more adorable every time I saw them. Here are a few of my favorite prairie dog photos and if you want one, get in line behind me.
Thanks for dropping in…

They are so cute! Years ago near the badlands was prairie dog town, and apparently they love watermelon. They were everywhere. I’m not sure if it is still there but we had fun watching them!

Watermelons, that’s funny! They were definitely fun to watch at this park. Always running around as if the sky was falling haha
