Theodore Roosevelt National Park
from Bob Cantor's National Parks Photo Gallery

The Oxbow Bend Overlook of the Little Missouri River is at the end of the scenic drive in the North Unit.
The park is known for its wildlife viewing. American Bison can be seen regularly in both units. These Wild Horses were next to the scenic drive in the South Unit. Juniper Hairstreaks were common throughout.
The half mile Wind Canyon loop in the South Unit takes you past a sweeping overlook of the Little Missouri River.
A short but steep climb up Buck Hill (South Unit) provides 360 degree views of the park.
You can't miss the Prairie Dogs in the South Unit. The scenic drive goes through several Prairie Dog towns and there were youngsters out and about in early June. The Old East Entrance Station Trail is a completely flat trail which goes through an extensive Prairie Dog town.
A short distance down the Painted Canyon Trail provided this view of the North Dakota Badlands.
The Enchanted Highway leading to the nearby town of Regent is definitely worth a visit to see wonderful sculptures like Pheasants on the Prairie, The World's Largest Tin Family and Grasshoppers in the Field.
