    Are you planning to visit the Crazy Horse Memorial? Who knows when they will ever finish it. At least you can see the face now.

    In addition to Mt. Rushmore, the Badlands are worth the visit to. Lots of buffalo around in those parts. Anyway, the Black Hills are beautiful and it should be a fun trip.

    I went through there when I was a kid. About 13 I think. It was one of the best vacations I ever had. That was almost 40 years ago and I still talk aout it with my mom. I hear it's changed a bit at Mt. Rushmore. I guess they moved the viewing area closer. As for the badlands, I don't think anything has changed there for 10,000 years! This year we are going to Disney. Three more days in fact. Probably be a bizillion people there. But we tend to be more laid back by the pool people and pick our times.

    Hey Brownmonster, enjoy.

    Try to go to one of the caves to the south of Rapid City, Not the tourist trap ones---the Nat'l Park ones---Jewell cave & Wind cave (if I remember right). Go see the air museum at Ellsworth AFB; don't know how much longer it'll be there as Ellsworth is on the chopping block. Sturgis has an ol' historic fort just outta town. Hot Springs SD has a GREAT indoor mamoth site (archeology). In Rapid they have a great miniture golf course. Mt Rushmore on the 4th of July nite is great.
