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 …

Custer State Park, South Dakota / Day #4

... my white Boca Grande short sleeve shirt to the car. Now we can not find them. The staff here at the Creekside Inn have no record of them being found. We don't know how they could have disappeared. As Sally likes to say "if it's not permanently disabling, or life threatening, it's not worth worrying about." So true, so tomorrow we are off for stop #2 on our adventure- Teddy Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota. Good night ...

... were later confirmed to be pronghorns.
Today we will carry on with anticipation of nearing Mount Rushmore. Couple stops being considered - a little drive around Billings (maybe that will confirm whether we have or have not been here-- there is still a little doubt in my mind as Jessica feels she has heard that name before from us) and maybe a national monument. Time will tell.
8:20pm and we are in French Creek RV Park in Custer, ...

Trip to Mount Rushmore

... that funny looking granite rocks could be carved into four such lifelike faces, Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln. Took lots of pictures. We took a 1880 steam train to Keystone.

Arriving in South Dakota

... Black Hills - over the mountains and then down the mountains - with motorcycles following us, in front of us and coming the other way on the road - just a little stressful! However, we arrived at the campground OK and found out that on Thursday nights, they provide hamburgs and ice cream for supper, so I didn't even have to cook! Great surprise! All's well that ends well!

    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.
