Let me back up to the day we left for South Dakota.  We had snow, snow, snow!  This is our small snowman we made for the kids and sent pictures to them!

Everything looked so pretty.  This is at our fifth wheel on Camp Guernsey.

Crossing into South Dakota, we entered Buffalo Gap Nation Grasslands.  We could see snow all around us, but only green pastures in Buffalo Gap.  It was really unusual.

It is a pretty amazing view.  We let Gracie out to run a bit and of course took a picture.
