    Since I got there a week early I was able to relax and take it easy at my own pace before my friends got there

    It's really weird when you're driving, there is absolutely nothing but highway for miles, you can't even see a house for the longest time then all of a sudden you see that metal bull

    I was a believer at one time. Jesus never heard one of my prayers. Same odds if I prayed to the bull.

    It's really a great time. The Black Hills is about the best place to ride. Even if you don't ride it is still worth going to. You can fly into Rapid City, great little town. The whole area is clean, the people are extremely nice. Great area.

    Awesome. I've stopped there before. Even went inside the bull's head. The artist who made all of the artwork there is a weird dude.

    I didn't go up to it. Weird highway. There are more billboards advertising Wall Drug than there are people in the state.

    Great photos! My grandma used to insist that we are related to Wild Bill but never offered any proof. I am a bad gambler though.

    Wild Bill was supposed to be too. He was born just west of Chicago in Spring Grove Illinois.

    Is there a monument of Crazy Horse up there? Seems like I read once that the Indians were pissed off about Rushmore on their sacred lands, and wanted to at least represent one of their own....
