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.

It was amazing. It ...

The best part though was the ...
... turned south. We had been watching a big storm on the horizon and had a little rain. Arrived Custer State Park in the Black Hills about 3:30. On our way to the visitors center looked like there was snow on the hill sides and there was a lot of tree debris on the ground. A major thunderstorm storm with high winds and large hail (not snow) had just hit the park.
We were going to take a loop road around the southern edge of the park. We heard a ranger mentioning where ...
