Scenic South Dakota Part 1
From Custer State Park to the Crazy Horse Memorial, Mt. Rushmore to Sturgis, South Dakota is a shutterbugs dream. Since there is so much to see, Part 1 will deal with the far southern part of the state. Quaint coffee shops, downtown waterfalls, Wolly Mammoth excavation and a nearby State Park with a variety of indigenous animals is a pretty fair start to a multi-part photo journey.
