This Best Western is an older one, well used, with a few upgrades and was in a good area, easily accessible. I didn't read the fine print and discovered our room didn't have a refrigerator or microwave. The room was small, stuffy and the smoke alarm was disabled. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. It was a bit more expensive than some of the other Best Westerns Hotels we've stayed in recently, but they are in peak summer season now and you have to expect to pay more.

Once a day, a tour bus goes through the tunnel at the Needle. It's a fun event to watch as the clearance on both sides of the bus is only a few inches. ...
... then went to the Adams museum. This is a museum about the history of the town. Lots of different things to see here, we spent a bit of time learning about the history of the town and its people. After this museum i walked over to the station and had a look around, it was just more information about the town and its later life before recovery due to tourists. There was also information on how the town burned down a few times. I then had a look at the street shows still going on, ...
... like Mach speed (but was likely closer to an average person's light jog, neither of us are in stellar shape, and we both were in need of an oxygen tank after the scare). Once we cleaned out our underwear from the near near-death experience, we hit the town of Custer and grabbed a growler of local beer and the ingredients to make buffalo meat fajitas, which proved to be the perfect end to the ...
