Short stop in Spearfish, SD at the Spearfish B&B. Dinner in town at the "Steerfish Steak & Smoke." The next morning we drove along Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway. Stopped to photograph Bridal Veil Falls and Spearfish Falls. Both were beautiful.

You'll walk down a winding patch to a few look out sites. Beautiful scenery. Quite the path down and back up again but not too terrible.

You have to park on one side of the road and cross the highway to view the falls. They are very pretty and a good photo op. Just be really cognizant of the traffic as you cross.

Definitely worth a stop and a photo opportunity. There is a nice platform to take pictures on or, for the more adventurous, you can head through the creek and stand at the falls.

I'm sorry, I really don't know that answer as I wasn't aware of any animals in the area... I was just basking in the upward beauty of the falls and taking many pictures of it...
