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.

We entered Custer State Park for the drive back to Hot Springs. Sam got a little tense as we wound around tight hairpin bends, over ...
... pronghorn antelope, more begging burros, and more prairie dogs. They have these jeeps for the Buffalo Safari Tour that I keep seeing all over the place. I mean, maybe they take them off-roading to some secret spot and tell them funny buffalo stories, but I keep seeing them on the same road I’m on that I’m driving for free.
