We came for a couple of days and stayed ten! Just loved the gorgeous setting, great location to Custer State Park and the city of Custer, and the friendly interactions with the owners Frank and Susan. They take meticulous, loving care of the place. The cabins are adorable, bathrooms super clean and the grounds well cared for.

Wow, the Black Hills are one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen. We came to explore the area for a couple of days and ended up staying ten. Just loved Custer State Park! It seems there are few truly wild places in this country but Custer State Park is one of them. Nearly 1,400 magnificent buffalo wander the park's 71,000 acres. They …

We crossed into Wyoming at 10:00, and could see the Big Horn Mountain range in front of us. When we stopped in Sheridan for fuel, we paid $3.70/gal. John didn't figure out the mpg since we had run the generator so long yesterday.
Our drive today encompassed a totally different type of beauty than we have been seeing the last few weeks. There were so many different views, it is beyond my ability to describe, and ...
... that evening for a pyrotechnic show. It seemed like an exciting idea, but our travels took us farther north and returning for a show that would last until 11:00 PM didn't seem reasonable.
We drove the Needles road from Crazy Horse to Mt. Rushmore. Custer State Park charges 15.00 per vehicle to drive this route. We weren't expecting this. I guess it keeps the traffic down through this winding route with narrow roads and even narrower ...
... hail! This was one of those moments when were quite happy to not be in a tent.
The rain stopped and the sun came out long enough for us to visit and enjoy Mt. Rushmore. I must say, while quite impressive, it almost pales in comparison to Crazy Horse (even though the monument isn't done yet). It's interesting to learn that it was the sculptor (Borglum) who chose the subjects he'd carve even though the idea for the monument wasn't his. While the ...
largest herd of wild roaming bison. I’ll have to come back some day because
there’s still something I want to do here. I’ve climbed/hiked the highest mountain
in a quite a few states and would love to bag Harney Peak, highest in South
Dakota and a reasonably long hike but I’m sure an easy cakewalk at just over
7,000 feet elevation, approximately half the altitude of the many fourteeners I’ve
climbed in Colorado.
