Steve, our bus driver, was a jovial guy, interspersing facts about the process of creating the memorial with lame jokes and jabs at ...

In the Black Hills of SD...where's Rocky Raccoon?

... drove out the next morning, we were all open mouthed at how stunningly beautiful this back country road was with its twists and turns, roller coaster-like corkscrew narrow roads, small rock tunnels and beautiful vistas.
