The prairie dogs are fun to watch! Once you know what they are, you'll notice them in other places and states. Some tourists got too close --- even though they had telephoto lens. The prairie dogs are more active and comfortable when you give them space and wait patiently. They seem to be out all day.
This is worth the drive on the dirt road! The prairie dogs were so cute and there were >100 of them! It looked like there were adolescents playing when we visited in late August. Also on the drive to the prairie dog town, we saw 2 bighorn sheep and a bison (e didn't see any on the main, paved park roads). We took the dirt road in a sedan car with no problems.
