Our first trip to Custer/Black Hills was late September and it was dark skies the whole four days. Still, we enjoyed so many things in that region that we're planning to go back in Spring of 2011.
As seniors, we won't be doing hiking or camping. Photography is important to me and I am trying to find the best time for our trip when the landscape will be coming to life. We hope to cover the region in a one week trip.
Any suggestions as so how early in May we could expect to see color and have reasonably good weather? (We'll need to be back in our home state by the first week in June.)
Thanks for all input!
