South Dakota Trip 1 - Move on to South Dakota Trip 2
In June, we took off for a fun vacation to The Black Hills of South Dakota (from '62-'63, while in the Air Force, I was lucky to have been based at Ellsworth AFB near Rapid City). We drove all through the beautiful Black Hills where we visited such fun places as Mount Rushmore, Chief Crazy Horse Memorial, Custer State Park, Needles highway, Mammoth Site, Reptile Gardens, Bear Country and Cosmos Mystery Area. We also ventured out to The Badlands, Deadwood, Tatanka Story of the Bison, the Geographic Center of the United States in Belle Fourche and Devil's Tower, Wyoming. All in all, this was one of our best 'out west' vacations ever and we plan to go back soon with Ryan's family.

  
1. We rented this house in the Black Hills.    2. On our first day, we drove to The Badlands National Park.


  

1 & 2. Ancient mammals such as rhino, horse and saber-toothed cat once roamed here.
Bison, bighorn sheep, prairie dogs and black-footed ferrets live here today.
