We first visited South Dakota during a ski trip/ road trip in the winter of 2012 with a 4 of our friends. On the way home from skiing Big Sky and Jackson Hole, we stopped to admire Mt. Rushmore, and then got stuck in a whiteout on the highway home.
During the summer of 2014, we then took our travel trailer through the Badlands and the historic Wall Drug. The temperature this time around was in the hundreds.
More recently, in May, 2015, we camped at Custer State Park and visited Jewel Cave and Wind Cave. The snow found us once again, and we were hit with 8-14 inches in the Black Hills
