When I was 16 I took the train with my best friend from Portland Oregon to Aberdeen South Dakota
We spent part of our summer with her Grandparents on their farm.
One of my memories of that time were the Prairie Dogs
and how many of them there were.
When we spotted this family in Custer State Park, SD
I was instantly young and transported back to that broad expanse of farmland
and those hundreds of heads popping up from holes in the ground!
