The Hills Inn, in Hot Springs, SD is a great "Mom and Pop" Motel on Highway 385. The rooms are sparkling clean, comfortable and a great place to rest, relax and use as a home base while touring the Southern Black Hills. I highly recommend it for anyone who may stop in this area.

After the mini-stampede we continued to Hot Springs, SD and the Mammoth Site that Steve B. recommended that we stop and see, arriving there at 11:25. We were certainly glad that we did stop. It was amazing. It ...
... a walkway to view the dig. At various points along the way, the guide uses a one-way radio to talk to you about the site...visitors use a telephone receiver to listen since the room is so vast. To date, 60 skeletons of either wooly mammoths or Columbian mammoths have been found along with various other animals that lived at that time. One of them was a menacing short-faced bear that stood 15 feet on its hind legs. After the tour we ...
... stuffed. We decided to go drive the Wildlife Loop Road since it was early and look for animals. My dad had already driven it earlier in the morning and had the buffalo surround his car, so he took us back to that spot and they were still there. There were a bunch of them too. We also saw a cute little deer jumping around in circles in a field, lots more buffalo including a herd running down a hill and then in front of our ...
