Highlights of the drive from Buffalo to Hill City:
Having lunch in Deadwood, the old gold mining town where Wild Bill Hickok was shot during a card game. Took a one-hour tour of the area and went to the cemetery where he and Calamity Jane were buried. Very scenic mountainous area.

... played phooies on the HUGE rock in our backyard. Then we set out to see the Crazy Horse memorial but we took a detour (on purpose) to Deadwood SD. We ate lunch next to a cute little creek. Then we drove to Crazy Horse Memorial, nor watched a movie about the mountain and how it was carved. Then we went to the gift shop. Next, Edie, Ben and Tommy went down to the ...
