    ... hill. We're so close to nature here. Even the wild flowers lining the road were beautiful. We detoured to Custer for a coffee break and some shopping. On the way home, we cruised on the Needles Road, one of our favorite routes. The drive takes you through granite needle-like formations - hence the name. The Cathedral Spires formations can also be seen. Every turn in the winding road presents spectacular views to behold and with the sufficient rains, the landscape is emerald ...

    ... again and over the years Wall Drug has grown tremendously in size and scope and is a major tourist attraction. It puts South of the Border to shame. If you want to know more go to and search for Wall Drug. They have a great write-up about it. Perpetuating the myth of the Jackalope is a big thing at Wall Drug (and maybe in South Dakota, in general.) They have many versions for sale and a giant one outside for photo ops. (See ...

    ... for some buffalo or tatanka as apparently the Indians called them. It was a very pretty drive, but the herd of over 1500 buffalo continued to allude us despite our chants of tatanka, tatanka.
