    time of year

    Favorite thing: If you are thinking about coming to the Black Hills of South Dakota, Then June or July is the Time. Usually you can get reservations at most hotel/motel, bed and breakfasts. If you choose to wait until august, there may not be any accomodations. You see there is a motorcycle rally in Sturgis, South Dakota the second week in august, so almost all of the rooms are taken for years in advance for about a 100km radius. Also if you come earlier; there are far less people.

    Favorite thing: Go to Custer State Park. The scenery and the wildlife are worth it. Sylvan Lake is one of the trailheads for
    a hike to Harney peak, the highest in South Dakota and
    the highest between the Rockies and the Pyrenees. If you drive the Needles Scenic Highway through the park,
    you will be awed not only by the granite spires, but by
    the feat of engineering it took to construct these roads.

    Favorite thing: Driving through this area of the country, you are assaulted by signs pointing you to the most famous attraction in this neck of the woods, Mt. Rushmore. Carved by Sculptor Gutzon Borglum in 1927, he began drilling into the 6,200-foot mountain. Creation of the Shrine to Democracy took 14 years and cost a mere $1 million, though it's now deemed priceless.
    Mount Rushmore National Memorial, surrounded by the Black Hills National Forest, is 25 miles southwest of Rapid City, South Dakota, via U.S. 16; and 3 miles from Keystone via U.S. 16A and SD 244. You can read more at:
