The Black Hills are…

…really green, deriving their name from the densely packed trees that cover much of the landscape. Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park and the Crazy Horse sculpture (not even close to being finished) are all within its boundaries, as is Deadwood, where Wild Bill Hickock met his demise. Herds of wild buffalo roam the Custer SP and at one point they decided to cross the road, weaving among cars, seemingly without a care in the world. One lingered for about a minute behind my car, examining either my license plate or the box of Cheerios I had stashed in the back.

    1. Yes, liked them both. A little disappointed in the CH sculpture, though. Thought it was going to be bigger. Anyway, pulled into Medora, ND, yesterday. The TR national Park is breathtaking!
