Happy New Year everyone! Ok, I've got my South Dakota vacation guide, and I'm ready for some serious planning. And that means a few questions for you experts.
Hotels: I've narrowed it down to either the K Bar S Lodge or Roosevelt Inn/Powder House. I really like the K Bar S, but I'm worried because I've read that tour groups stay here. Are the tour groups a problem? Will we have a long line for breakfast in the morning?
Touring ideas: We can prob. take a week for our vacation: 2 days to travel (we're in Pittsburgh) and then 5 days of touring. I was hoping to make Keystone our "home base". Do any of you have the SD Vacation Guide? On p. 111, they have 5 suggested road trips in the Black Hills & Badlands. Could I use each of these road trips as one day of touring?
What about the northern area - Deadwood, Lead? Is there enough for a whole day? (We're not into gambling or casinos) I'd kind of like to see Belle Fourche and the center of the Nation, but I realize that won't take very long. How far is Devil's Tower? Can we include Devil's Tower in a one-day tour of the Northern Hills?
