For all you Ricochet members who are planning to go to the SD Meetup in September, I thought I’d do a little post with some of the photos I took when we visited on our way to Hillsdale Hostel in 2010. We didn’t visit all the places Randy has found, but we did catch a few. One place we visited then, that nobody knows about or wants to visit this year, is the Music Museum at the University of South Dakota in the town of Vermilion. Get out your map, and try to find Vermilion. You haven’t seen “off the beaten path” until you have been there.
Anyway, here are pictures of some of the places on Randy’s list.
That’s Devil’s Tower National Monument. We spent half a day there, and walked the entire trail around the base.
Obviously, Mount Rushmore. And for you geology buffs, on the back side of Rushmore:
I was fascinated by the layers of this rock, and their out-of-kilter appearance. The power of Nature.
This is only a small taste of the aircraft found at the Air and Space Museum.
Some more flying things at the museum!

The most entertaining part of the visit to Devil’s Tower were the prairie dogs.
Great article .
