The suprisinging highlight of the trip, recommended by Sue, is staying at the Spearfish Canyon Lodge in Spearfish, SD. No one in our travel group has ever been to this Honeybee state, and we have thoroughly enjoyed our time here (and what's not to like about 80 mph driving all over the western part of this state).
From Mt. Rushmore to the Crazy Horse Monument to the Badlands and the Black Hills, and let's not forget Wall, SD, rushing less to enjoy the sites is what we found most appealing. The topography changes every 10 miles (and it goes by fast...ahem), or so it seems. Looking forward to our last night here (evening hike) before we head south back to Colorado.
