Here are Mary’s 5 “must see” tourist stops when going to the Black Hills:
Corn Palace, Mt. Rushmore, Badlands, Crazy Horse, Wall Drug
She was my first guide years ago when we taught a class in South Dakota so when Roy and I did the same mini-vacation, we wanted to repeat ALL the highlights. Wall Drug was the 2nd stop – it is a huge souvenir, tourist trap but I remembered the unbelievable, delicious,great tasting donuts from years ago. Guess what? They are still the unbelievable, delicious, best tasting donuts I’ve ever had. I prefer the plain but the frosted ones are also great with hot coffee. We enjoyed 6 and brought 4 home to Rick and Mary. We enjoyed our time out west – we would add #6 to the “must see” list – Custer State Park. We took our dog, Hope, and she loved the nature trails. Fun!
PS from Mary – Connie will be teaching from our book Civil War Remembered on a cruise in January and I know several of you readers will be joining her. She’s looking forward to meeting the new gals and greeting old friends on this trip. Since I’m not much for traveling, Roy will accompany her on this trip.
