We took the Notch trail which was kind of crowded then we hiked the Window trail next, which was my favorite. What was cool about the hikes was that you could get up close to the rock …

Custer State Park, SD

A travel blog entry by feldjoe

July 4th we spent in Custer State Park. We took the Iron Mt Road into the park, which didn't offer many scenic views, but it still had some interesting road work: tunnels that framed Mt Rushmore, pigtail bridges, and divided two lane roads.

... we arrived at Wind Cave National Park in south western South Dakota. This area is beautiful, prairie, but gentle, green, rolling hills! After picking up our ranger pack we toured the Natural Entrance tour of Wind Cave, 250 feet below the surface. It was great and the 11 degrees Celsius was a welcome relief!

Camping at the primitive Elk Mountain Campground was peaceful. We could hear the ...

    The campsite is really scenic, at least where our campsite is. We're a short walk to the showers and bathrooms and they are clean. Not to far from the grocery and horseback stables.
