South Dakota Black Hills Part 2

Alpen Rose RV Park, Durango, CO.   H89  L48

This is going to be more of a pictorial than most entries.  I am including a few pics of other points of interest in the Black Hills that Judy and I took in during our visit. Most motorcyclist rate this area as a must to ride and I am glad that I took the opportunity to ride the Black Hills back when I had my Harley Road King. I must admit that is was very rewarding touring the area in a car also. I recommend that if you have the chance to visit the area, take it!

Crazy Horse Memorial

Custer State Park Wildlife Loop

Wildlife Loop Road travels through 18 miles of open grasslands and pine-speckled hills that much of the park’s wildlife calls home. Depending on the day, you might see bison, pronghorn, whitetail and mule deer, elk, coyotes, burros, prairie dogs, eagles, hawks, and a variety of other birds. A medley of colorful wildflowers and prairie grasses surround the road, making for a picturesque drive.

The  visit back to the Black Hills, Judy and I hope it won’t be ten years before we get back.
