Road Trip: Black Hills, South Dakota

We just spent an amazing weekend in the Black Hills of South Dakota. We'd gone with the intent of seeing Mount Rushmore but had no idea of how much the area offers -- it's a beautiful part of the country, with plenty to do. Here's a couple of the highlights:

There's Mount Rushmore, of course:

And Crazy Horse (I hope they finish this -- it will be spectacular):

We also took a tour through Jewel cave, the 2nd largest underground cave in the world. We went on the "scenic tour" but for the more adventurous there's a 4-hour tour that involves crawling through some pretty tight spaces.

Now no trip would be complete without a yarn store sighting -- and I was happy when I spotted the following place as we were about to start the long journey home (unfortunately there was more 'stuff' than 'wool' - boo!):

All in all it was an excellent trip.
